Obiageli K. Ezekwesili, Vice President, Africa Region has announced the appointment of Mr. Laurence Clarke as Country Director, Angola, Mozambique, and Sao Tome and Principe, in the Africa Region, to be based in Maputo, Mozambique. His appointment becomes effective May 9, 2011.
This level is the third most senior in the World Bank outside of the President and is equivalent of Assistant Secretary General in the UN. It gives him the relative seniority internationally. His most recent assignment was Manager, Southern Sudan Programme and Juba Office.
In this new position, Mr. Clarke’s three top priorities will be to provide transformational leadership in the Bank Group’s engagement in three countries with diverse development challenges, but each with enormous growth potential; consolidate and innovatively deepen the growing public and private development partnership in these resource-rich economies; and lead and support the staff in implementing the priorities of the Bank’s new Africa Strategy while adjusting to corporate realities and opportunities.
Mr. Clarke was selected to this position through the Bank-wide competitive managerial selection process.
Mr. Clarke, a Guyanese, joined the Bank in 1978 as a Young Professional. He has since held a number of positions of increasing responsibility within the Bank Group, including Country Manager in both Zambia and Angola.
