Senior Private Sector Development Specialist
Michael Jarvis is a Senior Private Sector Development Specialist with the World Bank Institute, with an interest in private sector roles in development and strengthening ethical global business practices. He currently manages a program promoting good governance of extractive industries, but has worked on a variety of corporate responsibility and anticorruption efforts, including a business alliance to combat malnutrition. Prior to joining the World Bank, Michael worked on fair labor issues, promoting transparency in the arms trade, and as a consultant on historical corporate esponsibility and legal compliance issues. He can often be found in obscure music venues, a reminder of a brief stint on music radio.
