Your Public Value announces new leadership
Berlin, 1 March 2023 – Your Public Value welcomes new leadership as the Organisation embraces principles of good governance and opens its doors to young and bright leaders, determined to promote public value.
Tristan Helmstaedt, a chemical and process engineer with an international background, becomes the new Executive Director. A member for almost 3 years, Helmstaedt played an active part in the co-creation of the nine Public Value Principles©, the Public Value Assessment Tool©, and other workshops. In his opening presentation to the General Assembly, Helmstaedt committed to furthering research on public value and fostering strategic partnerships, while serving as a strong representative of the younger generation.
The General Assembly has also elected Yelena Novikova as the chair of the Supervisory Board, a multi-award winning ESG expert, whose thoughts appeared on the pages of Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI), Responsible Investor, Financial Times and foreign edition of Forbes. Novikova has also been involved in the co-creation of the nine Public Value Principles© and the Self-Assessment Tool. Novikova is known for her policy work on sustainability and good governance, as well as her engagement with the G20, T20 and G7.
Founding members Maria del Peso and Axel Hülsebusch were re-elected, respectively vice-chair and member of the Supervisory Board, thus maintaining continuity in governance.
While stepping down to offer space to new and young leadership, former executive director Virginie Coulloudon mentioned that she would remain engaged with the organisation she founded. In particular, Coulloudon volunteered to develop Your Public Value’s work on fighting greenwashing, thus maintaining continuity in research and co-creation: “ I created space for Helmstaedt, an inspiring under-30 leader committed to building a more sustainable world. I am proud that we could “walk the talk” and organise a smooth transition to help our non-profit grow further”, Coulloudon said. She will now focus on empowering values-driven professionals to grow their influence and make a greater impact.
The Your Public Value leadership is planning to make its new strategy public before the end of Q2.
