Yaroslav Yurchyshyn, Executive Director of TI Ukraine, submitted his application for the election to Board of TI Ukraine. In order to avoid the potential conflict of interest, current Deputy Executive Director of the organization Andrii Borovyk will temporarily act as Executive Director.

Yaroslav Yurchyshyn was appointed Executive Director of TI Ukraine in July 2016. He has been elected by Board members at the open competition.

“Successful implementation of TI Ukraine’s projects, financial sustainability of the organization, transfer of its central office to Kyiv, and improvement of organizational capacities were among the key tasks Board assigned me. Thanks to the persistent work of TI Ukraine, all of them were achieved. Today I believe that I will be more useful for the organization as the member of its Board. I am going to focus on advocacy of anticorruption initiatives and external communications,” says Yaroslav Yurchyshyn.
