WASHINGTON (December 5, 2012) — The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) announces several changes as part of a new program structure, including two new senior director positions — for public policy programs and for foreign and security policy.

Dymphna van der Lans, previously senior director for economics, climate, and energy is now the senior director for public policy programs, incorporating GMF’s Energy, Economic Policy, Urban & Regional Policy, and Immigration & Integration Programs. Ian Lesser, the executive director of GMF’s Brussels office, also is now the senior director of foreign and security policy.

“These moves will help GMF operate more efficiently and effectively while also recognizing the strong contributions Dymphna and Ian have made over the last several years,” said GMF President Craig Kennedy.

Other new appointments announced simultaneously include:

  • Mark Cunningham, Managing Director for Grantmaking
  • Mark Fischer, Managing Director for European Offices
  • Geraldine Gardner, Director, Urban & Regional Policy Program

The German Marshall Fund of the United States strengthens transatlantic cooperation on regional, national, and global challenges and opportunities in the spirit of the Marshall Plan. Founded in 1972 through a gift from Germany as a permanent memorial to Marshall Plan assistance, GMF maintains a strong presence on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to its headquarters in Washington, DC, GMF has seven offices in Europe: Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Belgrade, Ankara, Bucharest, and Warsaw. GMF also has smaller representations in Bratislava, Turin, and Stockholm.
