  • Global Travel Coordination & Expense Management: Arrange flexible travel itineraries, accommodations, and logistics for the CEO’s domestic and international trips, ensuring smooth and efficient travel experiences. Keep meticulous records of all travel expenses incurred.
  • Meeting Support: Prepare agendas, materials, and presentations for meetings, ensuring the CEO is well-prepared and informed. Attend meetings, take notes and manage follow-up actions.
  • Event Coordination: Assist in planning and executing special internal and external events, conferences, and fundraising activities, including logistical arrangements and coordination of staff/contractors.
  • Confidentiality: Maintain strict confidentiality and discretion in handling sensitive information and communications.
