Our Board 2016
GreenLamp has nine board members. All board members work pro bono.
Christina is the person whose spark of inspiration led to the foundation of GreenLamp and, as President, she is our driving force. Responsible for our strategic direction, Christina also draws on her wide network to lead the fundraising and relationship-building function within the association. Christina has an overview on all GreenLamp activity and, taking inspiration from her passion and desire for social justice, she leads with determination and an acute sense of responsibility for all that we do.
Linda thrives when involved in projects where she can bring her energy, enthusiasm and experience in events, business development and external relations to work. As Vice-President at GreenLamp, Linda is involved in fundraising, works with the communications team, and advocates. She loves the opportunity that GreenLamp gives to sharpen and widen skills while working within a diverse team of individuals who put in the effort necessary to meet our ambitious goals.
Henriette brings passion and commitment as she heads the organization of GreenLamp’s events. Nothing fazes Henriette as she plows calmly through strategies, ideas and practical solutions for all aspects regarding GreenLamp. Her nursing background, fluency in German and Swiss experience is an invaluable asset to our team.
