Pep Bardouille

“I was drawn to Global Angels because of their very unique 100% promise‎, and am excited about seeing the organisation scale its impact.”


pepPep Bardouille has worked at the nexus of the public and private sectors for almost fifteen years, in management consulting and with international development institutions across over twenty countries.

At McKinsey & Company, Pep advised CEOs and their senior teams in the electricity, oil & gas and mining sectors in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia on corporate strategy, organizational delivery, and operational performance improvement. She also served local and global development agencies on a range of issues, from strengthening decentralized decision-making to designing sustainable national budgets. With the United Nations and the World Bank, she has lead policy and road-mapping engagements with governments to enhance key social- and economic sectors in Africa and the Middle East.

Currently a Global Energy Specialist at the International Finance Corporation based in Washington DC, Pep drives the development of initiatives to address climate change and scale-up access to modern energy devices, electricity and clean cooking fuels for the poor using commercially-viable models, and is leading innovative projects to re-shape energy access in South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia.

Passionate about poverty alleviation, sustainable development, and human rights (especially the injustice of sex trafficking) she has volunteered with organizations at the community level and brings to Global Angels an excitement for solving complex challenges, experience in replicating success stories, and commitment to helping grow its reach and transformative impact over the long term.

Pep earned degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Environmental Management, and holds a doctorate in Environmental and Energy Systems Studies. In 2012, she co-edited a book, Sushi & Tapas, that shares the joys and struggles of women from around the world, some of the proceeds of which will benefit Global Angels’ flagship projects.
