JENNIFER PRELE, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Jennifer is responsible for the operations, strategic planning and day-to-day management of Enabling Environments. She is also responsible for the elaboration and implementation of private sector, trade and institutional development projects.
She has worked for an international development consultancy in the UK (Landell Mills), as an economist for the Ministry of Economic Development of Mauritius, as a consultant for the UNDP in Mauritius and for a development consultancy in China. She has extensive experience in project management, coordination and monitoring of aid for trade, private sector/SME development, institutional strengthening and regional development projects and an excellent understanding of EPA negotiations and WTO compliancy.
Jennifer has managed both short and long term contracts funded by the European Commission, and is therefore very familiar with EC & EDF procurement procedures. In Mauritius, she was a member of the team responsible for the monitoring and implementation of large national development projects funded by international donors (World Bank, EU, ADB, etc.) as well as bilateral programmes. Jennifer is able to offer a balanced approach to international development, given her insight from both the perspective of the donor, as well as that of an ACP citizen.
Jennifer holds a MSc in Development, Administration & Planning (Bristol University, UK), as well as a Bachelor of Applied Economics (University of Canberra, Australia) and a professional certificate in Programming and IT (American University in Cairo, Egypt). She is fluent in English, French, Creole and speaks basic Mandarin.
