Our Team

Meet the team who keep DFK running!

Our members matter. To make sure DFK is serving them to the best of our ability, we have an executive board that sets DFK’s strategic aims, values, and standards. They are also in charge of the less exciting but very important elements of running the organisation such as risk management and ensuring the necessary financial and human resources for DFK to meet its objectives.

Harriet Greenberg (USA)

President

It’s a great honour and privilege to be named President of DFK International.  At DFK, we are people first and professionals second.  During such challenging times as these, it is important to keep this understanding at the forefront of everything that we do. Inclusion, growth, progress and change are a few words that sit closely in the front of my mind during these tumultuous times.  I am proud to be part of an organization that is willing to promote and champion women within the association and profession. Recognizing that DFK’s strength is grounded by diversity of person and thought, under my presidency DFK will continue to be a world-centric organization in which all the regions feel included.
