Fred Dubee

Fred Dubee is the Senior Officer of the UN Global Compact, an initiative of the previous Secretary General, Kofi Annan. Fred's long business career began in the automotive industry in 1968 and established him as an effective innovator in the areas of marketing, strategic planning, training and development, general management and cross-cultural team building.

Three decades unevenly distributed across North and South America, Europe and Asia, opened the doors to intensive learning as a team member on some fascinating projects including: leading the development and implementation of a large-scale, individual needs-based training approach in Brazil, leading to the creation of multi-stakeholder program to successfully develop, produce and market a Brazilian vehicle in North America, and participation in a successful broad partnership project to substantially eradicate cataract-caused blindness in China.

In the spring of 2000, Fred undertook an assignment to help in the preparation of the Global Compact launch and in October 2000, he joined the United Nations as Senior Officer, Global Compact.

Fred lectures "Peace and the Global Compact" at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies via supported distance learning in partnership with the TRANSCEND Peace University (TPU).
