Jenni Cardamone

Senior Director, Partnerships

After spending her first three years at Devex implementing communications campaigns with donor agencies, corporations and NGOs, Jenni has taken on the challenge of launching Devex’s newest business line, advertising strategies. After nearly a decade in Washington, D.C., she is fulfilling a lifelong dream of living abroad by working in Devex’s Barcelona office helping people do good around the world.

In Jenni's current role she leads the creation of custom advertising campaigns for Devex’s partners — from universities to service providers — helping them amplify their reach and position them as thought leaders among our niche audience of a million global development professionals.

From sixth grade, when she first traveled internationally on a student ambassador trip, Jenni knew she wanted a career in development. She just didn't know such a career existed until she moved to D.C., and dove into roles with the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network, and Deloitte, where, as a senior associate, she executed marketing plans and sponsorships in support of business development, including the redesign and launch of their emerging markets website. Named as one of the 2012 "Top 99 Under 33 Foreign Policy Leaders" by the Diplomatic Courier, Jenni's passion for a better world makes her a powerful part of the Devex Partnerships team. Just don't get in the way of this spirited go-getter and, we should mention, second-degree Taekwondo black belt.
