FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
I am delighted that Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has appointed Anthony Lake as the next Executive Director of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Dr. Lake will bring extraordinary experience, strategic vision, passion and energy to UNICEF’s essential work.
Tony Lake has a deep and longstanding commitment to UNICEF and its mission. Over the course of his remarkable career, he has dedicated himself to advancing the rights, protection, welfare, development, and education of children.
I look forward to working closely with Tony Lake to support UNICEF as it continues working to improve the lives of children all over the world.
