About The Speaker
After beginning her career in Canada in the financial services industry, a series of opportunities led Kristina to the charitable and social business world. For the past twenty years, she has been helping consulting firms, charities, and innovative social impact companies develop new programs and/or service offers. Before taking on the role of Executive Director at FAIRE, she worked on a wealth of diverse projects including the development of a specialized fundraising offer geared to help smaller structures with capacity building, the merger of two French rural development charities, the French launch of a US pro-social business that promoted volunteering among youth, and management of the family business. FAIRE was a natural evolution and an innovative philanthropic project that works like a start-up. Working closely with the fund’s founder, Kristina has built the fund from the ground up, developing and implementing strategy via donations and operational programs, all in support of refugee entrepreneurs in France.
