Global Executive Team

The Global Executive Team (GET) represents over 100 years of Compassion experience. Together, this team directs the work of our global staff in 26 countries and creates a culture of excellence and integrity that Compassion is known for around the world.

The GET meets several times each month to oversee the development and effectiveness of the worldwide ministry of Compassion. During these meetings they review operational and strategic issues and pray together as leaders for our staff, sponsors and donors, children and advocates.

Compassion's Vice Presidents

Compassion's Vice Presidents (VP) provide daily leadership over some of our ministry's most critical functions. At Compassion, competency and experience are only one piece of what our VPs bring to this ministry. Each individual below has joined Compassion out of a deep sense of calling to release children from poverty in Jesus' name.

Like you, each of these leaders has answered that call. Together, they offer years of practical experience in their areas of expertise. Annually, over 11,000 applicants apply for employment here at Compassion, and out of that we are able to hire not only the best and brightest — but the most passionate.

Ask any of these leaders why they chose Compassion, and what our mission means to them, and they'll give you their unique perspective on how they see Compassion's mission coming to fruition.
