Earlier this month, the European Liberal Forum (ELF) welcomed Alva Finn as new Executive Director. Originally from Ireland, she brings twelve years of experience in policy at the EU, UN and national levels to the organsation. Finn is the outgoing Secretary General of Social Platform, the largest civil society network working on social and equality issues in Europe.
Commenting on the new role, she said:
“It is exciting to join the European Liberal Forum at such an important moment. ELF, as the political foundation of the ALDE Party, has real potential to generate and spread liberal solutions for Europe. I hope to increase the impact of ELF and make us the partner of choice when it comes to thinking ahead to a better future. I look forward to working with the liberal community - ELF member organisations, ALDE Party, and Renew Europe Group – to help deliver a winning liberal narrative.”
Dr. Antonios Nestoras, the Interim Executive Director for the past six months, will take on the role of the Deputy Executive Director and will co-lead the European Liberal Forum with a strengthened policy & research pillar.
