Alexia Tye

Alexia Tye has senior management experience in both the non-profit and private sectors, which she now brings to the service of children’s rights.

Her earlier professional career was at major financial groups (Barclays, HSBC, Groupe Caisse des Dépôts and GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund), with international postings in the Asia-Pacific and Europe. In this context, she managed complex financings from all angles: financial analysis, project management, negotiation, legal, taxation etc. Alexia has worked with a wide range of public and private stakeholders in many countries in the Asia-Pacific, in the water, energy and infrastructure sectors.

Following this predominantly financial experience, Alexia moved on to the world of the environment and sustainable development, joining the Oceanographic Institute, Prince Albert I of Monaco Foundation, as Chief Financial Officer and Secretary General. In addition to her financial, HR, legal and risk management responsibilities, she took charge of philanthropic funding as Director of the Paris office, where she built a network of partnerships with NGOs and private sector entities active in the environmental field.

Currently board trustee and member of the audit committee of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UK), board director of Pro Bono Lab (France) and board committee member of European Women on Boards (Belgium and European countries), Alexia has significant experience in governance roles in the education, research and social inclusion sectors.  In addition, through her role as a controller at the IDEAS Institute, a French organisation that certifies good governance practices in the non-profit sector, she is closely involved in regulatory and ethical compliance.

A dual Singaporean and French national, Alexia Tye is a graduate of Oxford University and Paris-Dauphine University.  She is based in Paris.
