Sandrine Kibuey Joins Public Assets’ Board

The directors of the Public Assets Institute have unanimously elected Sandrine Kibuey, director of Statewide Housing Advocacy at Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO), to serve on their board.

A nonpartisan nonprofit with offices in Montpelier, Public Assets Institute is Vermont’s independent research organization on state budget, tax, and economic issues and the source for timely and in-depth state fiscal and policy analysis.

“We are delighted that Sandrine Kibuey has joined us,” said Board Chair Steve Gold, “She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge and a perspective we value. Her work with a diversity of Vermonters including New Americans, and her commitment to equitable access to public resources and services make her an ideal addition to the board.”

At CVOEO Kibuey directs rapid rehousing housing, advocacy, and support services to vulnerable communities, including asylum seekers and mobile home park residents. “My work has focused on managing large local, regional, and international projects, and it’s made me care deeply about the policies that affect peoples’ wellbeing,” said Kibuey. “I see my work with Public Assets as an extension of the work I do solving big problems and getting the details right.” 

Kibuey, originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, has been in the U.S. since 1997 and Vermont since 2006. In addition to her work at CVOEO, she is currently leading the Vermont New American Advisory Council (VNAAC) and serves on the board of Northgate Residents Ownership Corporation (NROC).

Prior to her position at CVOEO, Kibuey was a project manager in Cameroon for VSO International, where she provided project turn-around expertise and monitored project activities and daily operations focused on the health improvement and development of rural communities of the North region of Cameroon.

She graduated in International Relations from the University of Kinshasa-Democratic Republic of Congo and holds master of science degrees in International Community Economic Development and Organizational Leadership from Southern New Hampshire University.
