Steve McIvor

CEO, World Animal Protection

Bio Current as of August 19, 2016

Steve’s tenure as acting CEO and Director of Programmes has already got to the heart of the big global issues facing animals, such as influencing over 100 tour operators to stop supporting cruel wildlife entertainment venues and overseeing a global partnership with Nestlé, who recently announced their commitment to use only cage-free eggs in all their U.S. products.

He has also worked with global leaders in public heath such as WHO and FAO on a joint initiative to eliminate rabies without culling dogs by 2030, and supported the organisation’s disaster response team to protect animals in natural disasters such as Ecuador, Thailand and Mongolia.

Prior to World Animal Protection, Steve was the Deputy Chief Executive of Compassion in World Farming, where he ran the organisation’s corporate engagement programme including the high profile Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards. He has also been a member of the Executive Board at The Body Shop International, and was Chief Executive of the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection.
