My career in sustainability began when I took an opportunity to work as a recruiter for various industry sectors. I had the chance to assist Asset Managers, Asset Owners, Hedge Funds, Pension Funds, Private Banks & Wealth Managers, Private Equity firms, Venture Capital houses, ESG data providers and ESG Ratings Agencies, as well as Consulting firms, in hiring professionals across a range of specialties.

During a pinnacle period in the market's advancement, a collaborative endeavor emerged, focused on effectively navigating the domains of ESG, Responsible Investment, Impact Investment, and Sustainability, thereby fostering a more profound comprehension of the industry. I had the privilege of collaborating with companies spanning various stages of their development, encompassing both nascent start-ups and globally renowned enterprises.

Area of Specialisation

I've had the pleasure of working with businesses at all stages of integrating ESG into their operations. I've appointed professionals ranging from heads of impact, stewardship, and climate risk to team builders for ESG equity analysts, portfolio managers, corporate governance analysts, and sustainability advisors.

Thoughts on ESG & Impact Investments:

The Financial Services industry is relatively new to the Sustainable Finance sector, and the journey has brought out the needs as they arise. As a headhunter and recruiter, I passionately advocate for an intersectional diverse pathway that will unite specialists from a variety of backgrounds.

It has been an immensely enlightening and fascinating journey for me to serve as an ally for businesses and professionals to collaborate, and I look forward to continuing to do so.
