Simon Turner, Managing Partner, Inflexion, said: “We are proud to have increased our sustainability efforts over the last two years, and bringing on board someone of Jennie’s pedigree to lead this important area reflects our commitment to ESG. Her depth of experience will help shape our future efforts in this crucial area.”
