Teneo’s cross-functional ESG team of experts brings a uniquely broad range of expertise that helps clients build integrated, comprehensive, and customized programs that focus on sustainability and decarbonization; social impact; human capital and DE&I; and corporate governance. The team includes experienced professionals and recognized thought leaders from large institutional investment firms and prominent proxy advisory firms, as well as government, public policy institutions and NGOs. The team also includes experts in board advisory, management consulting and strategic communications.
“We are delighted to have Gaby take on this expanded role at Teneo as we continue to invest in building out world-class ESG capabilities to best serve our clients,” said Paul Keary, CEO of Teneo. “Gaby is a highly-respected and sought-after expert on ESG issues, and I know she will bring deep insights and strategic counsel to our clients. CEOs and boards are more focused than ever before on their approach to ESG, and Teneo is committed to helping our clients navigate this quickly-changing landscape.”
“Since I joined Teneo earlier this year as a Senior Advisor, I have been very impressed with the firm’s unique CEO advisory model, as well as the breadth and depth of the ESG capabilities that already exist across the firm,” said Gaby Sulzberger. “CEOs face an imperative to prioritize ESG as a key aspect of value creation. I know well the challenges many companies face today when it comes to ESG, and I am excited to start working more closely with the Teneo team and its CEO and board clients around the world.”
