Secretariat staff

The dedicated and close knit EuroClio staff works out of our Secretariat, based in The Hague - the International City of Peace and Justice. Managed by an Executive Director and Deputy Director, with others acting as Project Managers and office staff, considerable expertise is shared within the team. This office supports the association in delivering services to MembersPartners and the Board. The majority of its manpower goes into implementing projects and actions identified in the annual Action Plan according to the five Areas of Work and the four Topics of Work. Project managers are responsible for a wide range of projects. The Programme Director designs and oversees complementary actions. The Director has overall responsibility and fosters partnership development and advocacy.

  • The main staff member in charge of Events is Alice Modena.
  • The main staff member in charge of Communication is Andreas Holtberget.
  • The main staff member in charge of Fundraising is Catherine Savitsky.

Due to the limited size of project grants, the staff works in a holistic and streamlined fashion. In doing so it maintains a non-hierachical, slim and agile operation. The secretariat offers traineeships to students from all over Europe and beyond and offers them real work experience in balancing responsibilities with opportunities for learning.

The Secretariat staff is a truly international one, coming from six different countries and speaking a total of 10 languages: English, Dutch, Italian, Armenian, Ukrainian, Russian, Spanish, German, French and Norwegian.
