Anouk Tenten new CEO of NVPF

The Non-Violence Project Foundation is thrilled to announce the nomination of Anouk Tenten as its new CEO. With a strong international profile and after more than 12 years of management experience in the field of education, Anouk Tenten holds great ambition for the Foundation, aiming to make NVP programs a standard for all organizations in their fight against violence.  

Anouk Tenten has a strong expertise in the education sector built in the past years in many different organizations including companies such as Laureate Education Group, EF Education First or universities such as the Hospitality Business School EHL in Lausanne.

Holding a variety of operational and management positions, she worked on various product and project growth hacking challenges. In her last position, she was a Business leader for EHL’s start-up platform in Talent Acquisition and Learning. Dutch origin, but a chameleon by heart, Anouk traveled, studied, and worked across the globe. Her studies include a master’s degree in International Business Communication from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands and Stellenbosch South Africa, and a master's graduate certificate in Education Technology from UBC.   

For 12 years I have worked for incredible brands and remarkable organizations in the field of education, and I am humbled and excited about this opportunity to put my time, skills, efforts, and 100% commitment to the Non-Violence Project Foundation. I am proud to have landed in, according to me, today’s most significant and promising brand”, states Anouk Tenten.  

As a newly appointed CEO, Anouk Tenten has great ambition for the development of the organization:

I would like, with NVP teams and global support to build a significant educational enterprise on the solid founding work of the organization and the brand. NVP educational programs should be the standard for any school, university, and corporate environment, justifying their 0-tolerance policy against any form of violence.

Our unique brand, the Knotted Gun symbol, will need a larger recognition and understanding throughout our (digital) campaigns, global educational rollout, partnerships, and support. Welcoming the unlimited opportunities, we need to create digital and non-digital consistency, collaboration, and communities.

Anouk has been living in Switzerland for 8 years. She loves nature and all types of outdoor, water and mountain sports.
