Tamara Demuria

Tamara Demuria shapes and heads humanitarian assistance for Corus International, bridging a developmental approach to the most complex humanitarian crises and looking to leverage and support local capabilities with an eye to recovery, resilience and lasting impact.

Tamara joined Corus in 2020 from FHI360, where she served as the associate technical director, crisis response and integrated development. She brings years of experience leading complex humanitarian and development programs, including at the Danish Refugee Council as interim head of programs for Ethiopia and Djibouti; CARE USA, where she served in multiple roles as a director of practice, partnerships and innovation, and deputy director of humanitarian strategy.

Tamara has spent substantial time working overseas. Over the last decade, she served as deputy country director in Haiti, deputy chief of party for a multi-million-dollar food and nutrition security program (USAID), program director in the Caucasus, among many other field-based leadership roles. Tamara’s achievements and highlights of her career include her nomination as “Mobile Money Pioneer” by USAID, her role in introducing and advancing cash and voucher assistance, including the gender and cash angle at CARE, her partnership work across a network of private sector companies and a unique sign-off on  Data Sharing Principles among 15 NGOs.

Tamara holds a master’s degree with honors in Leading Innovation and Change from St. John’s University, in the U.K., and a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from the State Technical University, the Republic of Georgia.
