New CAER CEO takes over

Julia Leske has been named the new chief executive officer of research company CAER after almost a decade working for the company.

Ms Leske has held a number of roles with the company, most recently holding the title of business development manager, and former chief executive Duncan Paterson said she was a good fit for the position.

“Julia has been playing an increasingly important role within CAER’s operations in recent years, and her strengths in developing and building strategic relationships in the broader responsible investment industry will be of key benefit for CAER,” he said.

Ms Leske said she looked forward to leading the company, which conducts research and analysis on Australian companies’ environmental, social and governance performance, “at a time where there is great momentum in responsible investment”.

Mr Paterson will remain with the company as executive director.

“As executive director, I look forward to remaining actively involved with CAER and responsible investment through my role on the Investment Advisory Board of the ACT Department of Treasury,” he said.
