Cynthia Capitaine has been the Head of Administration of Green Cross International since early 2013. Swiss national with a rich multicultural background, it is out of personal interest that Cynthia has paved her way into the world of non-profit.

Prior to joining Green Cross International, Cynthia launched her career working as administrative assistant and as Jr. Corporate Administrator in one of the world’s top ten fiduciaries and further as Executive Assistant for an import & export company. Benefiting from more than six years of professional experience in the private sector, Cynthia then joined the ICRC for a fixed term mission as an HR administrator.
