DARIA KRIVONOS

Daria "Dasha" Krivonos is CEO of CIFS. She has a background in strategic risk management across multiple sectors. She firmly believes that managing short-term risks and looking beyond the immediate planning horizon are equally essential approaches to manoeuvring an organisation through the uncertainties of the future.

Dasha’s broad knowledge of both megatrends and societal development patterns, combined with her hands-on experience as Head of Enterprise Risk Management at the A.P. Møller-Mærsk Group, demonstrates Dasha’s proficiency in applying research directly to concrete realities and the challenges that companies and organisations face.

BONUS INFO: BORN AND RAISED BEING THE IRON CURTAIN

Dasha was born and raised in Soviet Russia and came to Denmark at the age of 12 in 1993. She has experienced Russia before-and-after the collapse of the Soviet Union. This exposure has endowed Dasha with a natural curiosity in geopolitics and a nuanced perspective of the interplay in international relations.

BONUS INFO: ACTIVIST IN THE MARCH FOR SCIENCE

Dasha is a co-founder and organiser of the movement March for Science Denmark, which aims to underscore the importance of free and independent science for the development of society. With this in mind, Dasha hopes to contribute to raising the bar for societal debates and improving the extent to which these debates are anchored in facts.
