Former KPMG Australia human rights and social impact senior consultant Timothy Stamp has joined Mercer’s Sydney office as a responsible investment consultant, according to a statement.
He spent nearly three years at KPMG Australia, where he worked with clients in the financial services, real estate, natural resources, government and fast-moving consumer goods sectors, and, prior to that, was a consultant at Banarra.
Mr Stamp was a freelance social and ethical auditor in the UK for four years between 2011 and 2015, where he undertook compliance audits as a sub-contractor with various UK companies.
The new position will see him work with the rest of the responsible investment team spread out across the world to integrate ESG risks and opportunities into client portfolios, the statement said.
Mr Stamp will be joined by two other new hires to the responsible investment team, Max Messervy and Tomi Nummela, who will be based in the Boston and London offices, respectively.
Commenting on the appointment, Mercer global business leader of responsible investment Helga Birgden welcomed the three new members to the team.
“We look forward to leveraging their collective industry knowledge and experience to provide exceptional support for our clients who are looking to address ESG risks and opportunities, including climate change, on both a regional and global scale,” Ms Birgden said.
