We welcome Marion Verles as new CEO
We are excited and proud to announce the appointment of Marion Verles as our new CEO. Effective from 1st February 2015, Marion will take over operations from Adrian Rimmer, who has served as CEO since June 2010.
Marion brings more than a decade of relevant industry experience to her new role. She co-founded and worked as Executive Director of Nexus Carbon for Development, a successful co-operative that focuses on developing pro-poor low carbon initiatives. Her values and her wealth of strategic and management experience will help us remain a market leader. Whilst her pioneering approach to driving finance will ensure money continues to flow into climate and development programmes and her expertise and success with donor and investor relations will enable us to continue growing.
“I am thrilled and honoured to be joining the Gold Standard Foundation. As climate and development challenges keep rising, our window for action is rapidly closing. The need for reliable and timely information on the benefits delivered by each dollar of funding has become more and more important. The Gold Standard will continue to drive innovation in the delivery of practical, yet reliable methodologies to measure climate and development benefits on the ground.”
We are all extremely excited that Marion has joined us and we look forward to having her on board from February.
