HQ Leadership

In Washington, DC, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) looks to a team of dedicated professionals who have spent decades working across non-governmental organizations; election-assistance and democracy support groups; and the private sector. Our executive team has combined expertise in all areas of management.


Field Leadership

IFES’ leadership in the field gathers professionals with firsthand experience administering elections in every region of the world. Our chiefs of party and country directors have worked across the public and private sector; they have authored texts on political finance, election technology and election management; and have been a part of such historic moments as South Sudan’s independence and the Arab Spring.
