Mr. Addy is the founder and chief executive officer of the PSI Liberia program, and oversees the strategic direction and growth of PSI's newest platform. In this role, he has developed a strong partnership with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, and the Ministry of Youth and Sports, while initiating and building a strong relationship with PSI's traditional donors, as well as a respectable reputation in the development community.
