Josie Pagani, Director

Communications consultant and political commentator Josie Pagani took over the Director role at CID in June 2016. She has a high-level understanding and experience in the aid and development sector. Her career includes working as the communications manager for NZAID, and also for OECD DAC in Paris. Since returning to Wellington from Paris in 2007 Josie has managed a public affairs consultancy with a number of clients both in New Zealand and abroad.

Adele Broadbent, Senior Policy [Research] and Communications Analyst

Adele is researching policy and practice for CID members while also working on communications throughout the sector. She worked as a journalist and current affairs presenter on Checkpoint with National Radio for many years, followed by seven years as communications adviser at VSA. Adele’s post-grad development studies at Victoria University led her to complete her Masters at looking at Media Development in 2012, after which she joined CID.

Kitty Garden, Code of Conduct Coordination

Kitty joined CID in March 2016 to support member organisations in implementing the Code of Conduct. Kitty studied Political Science at Auckland University and holds an MA in Sustainable Development from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. She has worked internationally in a range of environmental and development-related roles, ranging from working with legislators from around the world on policy responses to climate change and energy access for the poor, to managing training and accreditation programmes for farmers and NGOs in forest restoration and sustainable livelihoods.

Madeleine Leydon, Information Officer

Madeleine has worked part time for CID since July 2011. Her roles include; coordinating the CID newsletter, office management and membership liaison.  Madeleine has a degree in Political Science from Victoria University and hopes to further her studies in the near future. Her past roles have been in the NGO, Corporate and Government sectors, including a year’s MFAT secondment in Iran in the 1980s. She has two gorgeous children and is a member of an all-women’s ukulele group - The Flukes - (a very social weekly gathering that has been known to do the odd performance!).

Dr Darren Brunk, Humanitarian Coordinator

Dr. Darren Brunk has spent over fifteen years working in the field of complex crisis response with experience in the Middle East, South America, Central and Western Africa, and also in the Pacific. Darren has worked with NGOs and the UN, in addition to over a decade of experience in government in a number of international peace, security, development and humanitarian roles. Beyond his hands-on operational experience, Darren has also published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in the areas of peacebuilding, statebuilding and humanitarian intervention, and provided extensive training for civilian and military personnel in the areas of complex crisis response, particularly in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.

Glen Williams, Accountant

Glen has been with CID since August 2010. If it's to do with the finance then Glen is the one to contact. A fully qualified CA member of the NZ institute of Chartered Accountants, Glen balances his 10 hours a week with CID, with 10 hours a week at the Anglican Missions Board and as a part-time licensed volunteer Youth and Families Pastor at the Whitby Anglican Church, where his wife Sandy is the Priest. Glen has two grown up daughters, both working in education - one as a high school teacher and one in early childhood. Glen's passion is working with young people, something he has done for over 25 years and something which may explain his sense of humour. No that's wrong. Nothing can explain Glen's sense of humour!
