Nina Tellegen
CEO, Amsterdam Economic Board

Since March 2016 Nina Tellegen is the director of the Amsterdam Economic Board. The mission of the Amsterdam Economic Board is to sustainably enhance the prosperity and well-being of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. To achieve this we work together with the business world, governmental agencies and knowledge institutes, focusing on collaboration, innovation and growth. The board focusses on five urban challenges: circular economy, mobility, health, digital connectivity and jobs of the future.
Until March 2016 Nina was the CEO of the DOEN foundation, a charity that uses the annual proceeds it receives from the three Dutch Charity Lotteries  (Postcode Lottery, BankGiro Lottery and Friends Lottery) to support committed entrepreneurs with sustainable, cultural and socially-engaged initiatives.
She started her career at the African Studies Centre where she worked as a researcher and where she wrote her PhD thesis on the development of rural enterprises in Malawi. From 2001 until 2007 she was the managing director of Wemos, an advocacy organization working on international health issues.
Since early 2018 Nina is a member of the Supervisory Board of De Kleine Komedie, a beautiful small theatre in Amsterdam. She is a passionate singer and sings in a Slavic choir named Slavuj. Every other year Slavuj goes on tour and performs in countries such as Bulgaria, Bosnia and Georgia. In April and May 2019 Slavuj will give a number of concerts in Armenia.
