Bloomer to join BHRRCJune 2013
Phil Bloomer is leaving Oxfam for the position of Executive Director at the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre. Bloomer, currently director of the Campaigns and Policy Division at Oxfam UK, will take up the position in September.
His appointment follows a comprehensive and highly competitive search and selection process led by six members of the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre board. Chair of the Resource Centre board Chris Marsden commented: “Phil is clearly an outstanding leader, strategic thinker and committed advocate for human rights. His track record demonstrates a strong ability to engage with victims of abuses and with corporate decision-makers to bring about progress on human rights – an approach that has been crucial to the Resource Centre’s success from the outset.”
Bloomer joins Business & Human Rights Resource Centre at an important phase of its development. Founded in 2002, it is the leading international human rights organization focused on providing information about private sector activities worldwide. Currently with researchers based in 13 countries, it has plans to further increase its outreach and impact in all regions. Bloomer will succeed the centre’s founder and current director Christopher Avery.
