Acre, a sustainability-focused recruitment and executive search firm, has announced the addition of Gloria Mirrione as Head of Sustainable Finance & Impact Investing, Americas.

Based in New York, Gloria is driving Acre’s growth in sustainable finance & impact investing in the U.S. Gloria has an extensive background in guiding c-suite executives across financial services to integrate ESG and create additionality for clients by increasing their focus on sustainability and impact.

“Sustainability is transforming the way companies prioritise talent, particularly in financial services, where companies have a unique opportunity to impact meaningful change. Acre is leading that transformation,” Gloria said. "By adding more top experts to its sustainable finance team, Acre shows how strongly it wants to create systemic change for the planet and society and help people reach their full potential."

Most recently, Gloria served as Senior Client Partner at Korn Ferry, where she was focused on asset management and co-led the ESG & Impact Investing practice. She brings more than 20 years of experience in professional services – eight of which focused on sustainability – having worked in global executive recruitment and focused broadly on financial services at all levels. She has worked with many global commercial and investment banks and asset owners & investment managers, with a focus on the private markets.

“Gloria’s standout track record of identifying Chief Sustainability Officers, Heads of ESG, and impact investing leaders within this sector make her an extremely important addition to Acre’s growing team in the U.S,” said Richard Wright, Acre’s CEO. “It is our ambition to shape a future where sustainability, impact and diversity are embedded in every organisation’s operations and value systems.”

Acre recently also announced certification as a B Corporation, joining the ranks of only about 2,000 companies that have this certification in the U.S. and Canada and just over 5,000 across the globe.
