Reyes Henkel, Magali

Magali Reyes Henkel joined Bioversity in October 2018, where she is responsible for strategic management across the areas of finance, IT, travel, protocol, security and risk management. Leading those teams both in the headquarters and in our local offices, Magali ensures delivery of services that support the organization’s research.

Having worked in various private sector companies, and after joining World Vision Mexico in 2003, Magali decided to dedicate her career to the non-profit sector. Her professional journey took her later in 2005 to Greenpeace Mexico where she was the Director of Finance and Administration.

In 2009, she moved to the Netherlands to take global responsibilities at Greenpeace International in the role of Regional Finance Manager. Then, in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster in late 2011, Magali joined Greenpeace Japan having a double role as Chief Operating Officer and Fundraising Director, seeking to strengthen Greenpeace’s presence in Japan and boost the shift to safe and renewable energies.

Her journey in Asia continued with a move to Seoul in 2015, joining Greenpeace East Asia. Bearing regional responsibilities across Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and China mainland, Magali was the Finance Director.
