Dave Elseroad joins team to cement IRF Geneva’s full-time commitment to Road Safety.
The growing outreach and potential of the IRF Group of Experts on Road Safety as well as the increasingly prominent role played by IRF Geneva
in the international arena - notably through its work in cooperation with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe
(UNECE) and as Chair of the Safer Roads and Mobility Project Group of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC)- have prompted the appointment of a new full time project manager.
Dave Elseroad, who joined the team in Geneva during May, comes to IRF with a background in international development and public health policy.
He previously worked for the Washington DC-based Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK), one of the partner organisations in the Bloomberg Philanthrophies’ global tobacco control initiative.
Concurrently, Dave managed a multi-million dollar portfolio of grants to NGOs and governments throughout Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Africa, the Eastern Mediterranean and South Asia.
As highlighted by IRF Geneva’s director general, Sibylle Rupprecht, “Elseroad’s appointment both strengthens IRF’s full-time commitment to road safety and enhances its overall capacity by enabling the previous incumbent, Barry Gilbert-Miguet, to revert to the roving editorial role he assumed previously and focus more on developing promotional, media and fundraising materials for the full range of IRF working groups and activities.
The team is henceforth better equipped to raise the profile of IRF members in relation to priority global issues that have direct impacts on both the image and sustainability of our sector going forward.”
