Evaluation of the Statutory Director
The year 2013 was Bernard Uyttendaele’s first full year as War Child’s Managing Director. The board is very pleased to observe that Bernard and the management team have been able to scale-up War Child’s activities in key conflict areas, through which War Child reached more children in 2013 than ever before. Bernard successfully rebuilt the entire management team and led the development of a clear strategy, which clarifies War Child’s core activities and identity. He also helped the organisation to tap into significant new sources of funding. These accomplishments have occurred in a dynamic and ever-changing environment—both in terms of the conflict areas in which we work, as much as in the world of institutional and private fundraising.
The Supervisory Board evaluated Bernard’s performance against six objectives set at the beginning of the year, as well as against a target set of skills and competences. The structure and composition of the new management team, the clear strategy and successful scale-up of activities in 2013, led the Board to conclude that Bernard’s performance has been more than satisfactory, while at the same time identifying a number of development areas for the management team. In summary, the Board is pleased with the first full year of Bernard’s leadership as well as that of the management team that has been put in place.
