Who Runs HCP?

HCP is made up of a management committee, subcommittees, an advisory board and our members. We have been very lucky to have had such a high quality of volunteers from a range of backgrounds — including academics, development workers, former politicians, journalists, and small business operators.

Management Committee:

John Humphreys — President & Executive Director
Cass Wilkinson — Vice President (Australia)
Morten Daugbjerg – Vice President (Cambodia)
Rachel Connor — Secretary
The Hon Paul McLeay — Treasurer
Dr Aleks Atrens
Dr Parvinder Kler

Cambodian ex-officio members:

Muon Veasna — UME (Kampong Cham)
Kim Peseth — UME (Battambang)



HCP currently has three active subcommittees, plus the President’s committee.
