Rogier Pleiter

Global Support and Project Accountant
In my role, I support the financial management in offices and on global campaigns, and help to build a stronger finance community for Greenpeace globally.  Greenpeace International has helped me further strengthen my communication skills such as recently where I presented various sessions at our Global Finance Skill shares for colleagues from the Americas, Africa and Europe.  At GPI, we have staff working together from very different cultural backgrounds, which has helped me to become flexible and more aware of cultural sensitivities.
