Vice President for Programs
"I spent nearly two decades fighting the symptoms of poverty more than its root causes, and only in Oxfam have I found a community of people who understand the difference and act on it with passion, humor, and smarts."
Darius joined Oxfam in 2011 and oversees our humanitarian response work, regional development programs, community finance, and learning and evaluation. Previously he led large multi-disciplinary teams to design and implement international development projects with governments in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia through leadership positions at the Asian Development Bank and the US Government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation.
Darius's professional interests include natural resource management, agriculture, human rights, and public accountability. He graduated with honors from Yale and Harvard’s Kennedy School, and completed advanced studies in resource economics at the University of British Columbia.
