Eirini Pitsilidi

Global Head of International Affairs
Compassion in World Farming


My present work focuses on global food system transformation, sustainable animal agriculture, nutrient waste and pollution, and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) within relevant United Nations bodies, such as the UNFCCC, UNEP, UN General Assembly, and the FAO.

I am an experienced, multilingual international policy and communications professional with a proven track record of successful project management. My strong advocacy instincts allow me to build winning strategies and partnerships. Underpinning this, I have deep scientific knowledge of animal welfare and a solid understanding of food systems.

During my career I have been exposed to working in cross-business environments, locally, nationally and internationally, and have become very experienced in executing demanding strategies at a senior level.

I am a highly motivated individual, a critical and analytical thinker with a solutions-oriented approach and creative flair. My approach to leadership is to enable my team to expand their horizon and provide support when they need it.

Key leadership skills: integrity and commitment, strategic thinking, planning and delivery, change management, relationship-building management, knowledge management.
