  1. Andrea Perera

    Vice President of Public Engagement

    "My commitment to Oxfam is rooted in my deep respect for the programs we undertake around the world. I have always admired the sheer audacity of our mission: to identify poverty as a man-made injustice that can only be eradicated through systemic change.”

    Meet Andrea Perera

  2. Paul O'Brien

    Vice President for Policy and Advocacy

    "I am at Oxfam because it works harder than any other organization I know to link the fight for global justice to local truths. We are a distinctive NGO because we do so much policy, advocacy, and campaigning. We are a different kind of 'idea leader' because we work so closely with communities around the world. On our best days, we bring it all together."

  3. Mark F. Kripp

    Vice President of Operations/Chief Financial Officer

    "Having lived and worked in rural Haiti, I have seen how the provision of basic rights can transform people’s lives.”

  4. Maura Policelli

    Chief of Staff

    "Oxfam's mission is rooted in the principles of liberation theology that are at the heart of my Jesuit education. Every day we work to empower those whose voices are not heard. Being part of these efforts is grounding and an honor."

  5. Barbara Durr

    Director of Strategic Partnerships

    "Since my first picket line at 15 years of age, I have always wanted to make the world a better place. Oxfam’s focus on poverty, rights and injustice makes it my choice to fight for that better world."

    Meet Barbara Durr

  6. Rachel Hayes

    Vice President of Public Engagement

    "My parents stood up to a government run amok, when my father refused to sign a loyalty oath in 1954. Helping others claim their rights is a personal mission for me. Where better to serve that mission than at Oxfam?"

    Meet Rachel Hayes

  7. Ashley Tsongas

    Chief of Staff

    "Oxfam believes that poverty is usually, at its root, about imbalances of power, that change is possible, and that solutions require good ideas, courage and persistence. It works. There is no better feeling than getting momentum going behind brave people with good ideas and seeing change unfold.”

  8. Abby Maxman

    President, Oxfam America

    “My career has led me to work in some of the most challenging parts of the world, seeing first-hand the impact of poverty, injustice, war and disasters and I’ve always been impressed by Oxfam’s commitment to facing tough challenges with high impact solutions. Today, the fight against global poverty and injustice is more relevant than ever; I am honored to lead the Oxfam team through this next chapter.”

    Meet Abby Maxman

  9. Shelley Goode

    Vice President of Resource Development

    “Oxfam understands that poverty is not an absence of assets—it is an injustice. Working at Oxfam, I am raising my voice and using my talents to right the wrongs of poverty and injustice. This is my moment in time to work with others to do more.”
