In her new role, Noha will provide leadership and strategic direction to the company to drive sustainable growth, effective communication, and expand DT Global’s impact. In his new role, Gerome will oversee and optimize key global business functions including IT, systems, ethics and compliance, insurance, security, and global policy in line with the wider company strategy.

“I could not be happier to have Gerome and Noha, two dynamic and experienced DT Global team members, step into these executive roles,” said Torge Gerlach, CEO of DT Global. “Noha is a strategic executive with years of experience leading growth strategies in the international development sector, and Gerome is a deeply skilled operations executive who has helmed key operations functions for a range of donors and our corporate offices. Both have been driving forces for DT Global’s growth and excellence over the last several years and I am excited to work with them in their new roles.”

Noha is a multi-faceted executive with more than 20 years of success in international development, spearheading effective growth strategies for a range of large international development organizations and clients. Most recently, Noha served as DT Global’s Vice President for Global Engagement driving strategic collaboration and global positioning for the company. Prior to that, Noha served as a Principal at Cardno International Development where she led Business Development for the US. She brings technical expertise in early grade reading, community education and acceleration, youth empowerment, and entrepreneurship across Africa, Asia, Europe and Eurasia, and the Middle East.

DT Global is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Rose Mary Garcia to the role of Lead Economist for DT Global’s US office. In this new role, Rose Mary will provide strategic technical expertise, advice, and thought leadership on DT Global’s economic growth work in the international development space.

“Economic development is a critical element affecting billions of people’s lives around the world. I look forward to furthering DT Global’s commitment to help countries and communities experience inclusive growth, address changing market conditions, build resilience to economic and socio-political shocks, and minimize impacts of climate change,” said Rose Mary. “I’m excited to work closely with technical teams not just in DT Global’s economic growth portfolio, but across the company, to ensure that crucial economic systems thinking is integrated into our work, and that learning is translated into knowledge products to further our impact.”

Rose Mary is a versatile economist and leader with over 25 years of experience in applied international economic development. She has managed economic growth teams, served as Chief of Party for USAID implementing partners and programs, and provided advisory services to a range of development funding entities for nearly 20 years. Most recently, she served as Vice President for Economic Growth and Governance at DT Global.

Rose Mary’s work has spanned 16 countries throughout South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Her focus areas within economic growth include youth and workforce development, macro-economic and business-enabling policy reforms, private sector engagement, SME development, decentralization, local economic development, taxation, livelihoods and poverty alleviation, and economic growth diagnostics.

“I’m so excited to have Rose Mary in this role,” said Sloan Mann, DT Global US President. “She has been a key part of our Economic Growth and Governance team for nearly two years, and I can’t wait to see how her work will transform our strategic thought leadership and positioning in the economic development space as a whole.”

We are proud to share the launch of CONSULTED, a Spanish non-profit organization chaired by our Managing Director for Europe María Garrón. CONSULTED is focused on enabling international development companies to support the role of the private sector in sustainable development.

CONSULTED is made up of 15 Spanish companies directly involved in development cooperation, representing over 300 million Euros in activity, and employing more than 1,000 professionals directly and more than 3,000 indirectly. These companies all have a strong commitment to social, environmental, and economic sustainability, and are dedicated to improving the living conditions of most vulnerable across the world.

DT Global Europe’s work with CONSULTED will strengthen the role of private enterprises in cooperation and public-private collaboration to achieve more efficient and sustainable objectives.
