Blumont appoints new regional director

Amman, Blumont Inc., formerly known as International Relief and Development Inc., on Tuesday announced that it appointed Linda Tubaishat as the organization’s new Regional Director in Jordan.

Tubaishat, the first Jordanian to hold a management position, will head the Amman office, working to oversee current programs while identifying new opportunities in Jordan and throughout the region, the Virginia based company said in a statement.

With more than two decades of experience, Tubaishat has worked in program design, implementation, management, and monitoring and evaluation.

She joined Blumont’s Amman office in May 2017 as Program Team Leader for the Strengthening Governance Structures in Syria (Tatweer) project funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DID).

Most recently, Tubaishat managed Blumont’s partnership and business development in the Kingdom.

Blumont CEO Roger Ervin said: “Tubaishat brings extensive knowledge and a valuable perspective to Blumont’s efforts in Jordan.”

“Her background in designing and implementing programs, combined with her extensive experience in building collaborative partnerships, will help strengthen our approach to smart, locally-led and sustainable development.”

Tubaishat assumes her role on June 1, 2019.

Blumont collaborates with local communities and partners to design and implement innovative approaches to stabilize communities by building infrastructure, delivering lifesaving humanitarian assistance and fostering opportunities for long-term economic growth.

With more than two decades of experience taking on challenging issues in challenging environments around the world, Blumont is committed to developing local capacity and helping to establish a foundation for progress in the Middle East and West Asia including projects in Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Blumont established its Amman office over 15 years ago. Its ongoing projects include community development and mobilization activities supporting approximately 77,000 refugees at Za’atari Camp which is funded by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Additional projects implemented in Syria are also managed out of the Jordan office.
