ONE’s New President: Michael Elliott

Michael Elliott is now the president of the anti-poverty campaigner ONE.

The appointment of Elliott, a former editor of TIME International, deputy managing editor of TIME magazine and columnist on the global economy for Fortune magazine, was announced on June 6. 

That announcement also indicated the designation Adrian Lovett, who served as global campaign director of Save the Children International, as ONE’s Europe executive director.

“Communicating success stories is one of our top priorities. Mike is a great communicator, as well as an inspiring leader. Brainpower is more important than passion in the fight against extreme poverty, but he has both,” said ONE co-founder and musician Bono in a news release. “Adrian Lovett’s heavyweight strategic and campaigning nous is great news for ONE’s European work and I’m very excited to work with him again.”

Elliott will helm ONE’s global operations, which are managed from Washington, D.C., London, Abuja, Berlin, Paris, Brussels and Johannesburg.
