Big Win congratulates former CEO Dr. Muhammad Ali Pate on World Bank appointment
Big Win Philanthropy is delighted to congratulate Dr. Muhammad Ali Pate on his appointment to the World Bank as Global Director for Health, Nutrition and Population and Director of the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF). He will take up his position in July 2019.
Dr. Pate served as Big Win’s CEO from the organization’s founding in 2015 until January 2019, when he was succeeded by Dr. Kesetebirhan (Kesete) Admasu, former Minister of Health of Ethiopia.
Dr. Pate played an integral role in building the organization’s portfolio of work and fostering strong relationships with transformational leaders across Africa. As a former Minister of State for Health in Nigeria, who implemented ambitious and successful programs during his tenure, he also epitomizes the type of leader with whom Big Win seeks to partner.
We are certain that Dr. Pate will bring his leadership and strategic vision to the World Bank and wish him well in his new position. We look forward to continuing to work closely together.
