Leadership change for Strategy & Sustainable Impact team


Ging Ledesma

15 May | 2024

The leadership of Oikocredit’s Strategy & Sustainable Impact team is transitioning.

Effective 1 June 2024, Ging Ledesma will transition from her role as Director of Strategy & Sustainable Impact to become Strategic Advisor for Impact & Social Performance. In her new role, Ging will concentrate on several pivotal projects including the development of a social due diligence training course and supporting Oikocredit’s 50th anniversary celebrations, among others.

Also effective 1 June, Kawien Ziedses des Plantes, Sustainable Impact Manager, will assume the role of Director of Strategy & Sustainable Impact on an interim basis, bringing her extensive experience in social performance management to the forefront of Oikocredit’s strategic initiatives.

Reflecting on the transition, Ging stated, “While full retirement is still a few months away, I am grateful to Oikocredit for giving me the opportunity to make this switch now – to step down as director and hand over management of the team to Kawien.

“Having spent nearly 26 years in service at Oikocredit, handing over to Kawien makes 'letting go' less difficult. I have worked with Kawien for nearly 10 years, and she is behind many of our successes in managing social impact.”
