New Executive Director
PILAS appoints Jimena López Martínez as its new Executive Director
"We have expanded the scope of our mission from Argentina to the rest of LatAm. Operationally we changed the name of our parent organization to PILAS but Help Argentina continues to operate exactly as before in Argentina."
PILAS, Portal for Investment in the Latin American Social Sector, announces the appointment of Jimena López Martínez as Executive Director of the organization.
The incorporation of the new Executive Director coincides with a process of growth and expansion of the organization throughout the Latin American region.
The sixteen years in which this organization has worked in Argentina make it possible to turn all its experience to a regional level and thus be able to achieve an impact on a larger scale in its mission.
Jimena López has a degree in Business Administration and is Accountant from the Universidad Católica Argentina. She has a postgraduate degree in Direction and Management of Social Organizations of the University of San Andrés.
She has more than 15 years of experience in the Argentine financial sector. He worked at Arthur Andersen, Bankboston, Bank of America and as Managing Director of a family office and other entities. She worked as a strategic consultant for various non-profit organizations and at the Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires.
With her financial and management background, her experience and knowledge of the third sector, coupled with his deep social sensitivity, we are confident that Jimena will lead this ambitious expansion of PILAS successfully.
"I am very excited to join the PILAS team in this important stage that is being assumed by the organization that since 2002 seeks to promote foreign social investment in Argentina. We have already channeled more than 1.4 million dollars in donations and we hope to double this number both locally and throughout Latin America in the next two years and continue accompanying its member organizations that work so hard to achieve social change" said the new Director.
