CDC appoints non-executive director

CDC Group, the UK’s development finance institution, has appointed Ian Goldin as a non-executive director.

Goldin (pictured) replaces Jonathan Kydd who is retiring after 13 years as a director.
CDC chairman Richard Gillingwater says: “I am delighted to welcome Ian Goldin to the CDC board. Ian brings valuable experience and skills which will complement our board. He will be a vital asset to CDC as we continue to take on the challenge of supporting economic growth in developing countries.
”I would also like to thank Jonathan Kydd who has given over a decade of dedicated service to CDC, during a period of immense change for the organisation. His deep development finance knowledge and his hands-on experience of Africa have been invaluable. We are extremely grateful to him and wish him well.”
Goldin has an internationally recognised reputation in the field of development finance and economics and is currently director of the James Martin 21st Century School at the University of Oxford.

His career includes senior roles as vice president at the World Bank, chief executive at the Development Bank of Southern Africa and principal economist at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. He was also an adviser to South African President Nelson Mandela.
