We are delighted to announce that Josien Piek has joined GRESB as Head of EMEA.
Josien is a macro economist with a 25-year background in the financial sector. She was a banker, structuring and syndicating loans at de De Nationale Investeringsbank and later a fixed income portfolio manager, managing credit portfolios of ABP (the civil servants pension fund of the Netherlands) and ING Investment Management. She also worked in London as head of Northern European sales for Investec Asset Management.
Her deep understanding of the financial sector will be invaluable in supporting our institutional investor members and the companies, funds and operators participating in the GRESB Assessments.
It will also provide relevant insight as we work to drive transparent sustainability benchmarking across real asset investments and develop high quality ESG data and analytical tools for the industry.
For these reasons and more we’re thrilled to have Josien as part of our team. And she’s thrilled too. We asked Josien what she was most looking forward to with her new role. Here is her answer:
I want to help improve capital allocation in the important real asset sector and help facilitate a sustainable future for our world.
We’re glad she’ll now be doing it with us at GRESB.
