I have spent most of my career at the ‘bleeding edge’ of innovation in market-making companies; starting in tech (Cisco, Check Point) and then launching and scaling purposeful consumer brands and pioneering B Corps (method, gDiapers), and have been at the forefront of building circular economy business models. Since taking on the role of CEO at Volans, the renowned think-tank and strategic advisory firm, I have reshaped Volans, launching thought leadership Initiatives such as Tomorrow’s Capitalism Inquiry, the Green Swans Observatory, Regenerative Transformation Architecture and the Bankers For NetZero Initiative, whilst continuing to advise a select group of leading organisations including Neste, Covestro, Acciona, First Abu Dhabi Bank and Selfridges Group in their transformation journeys towards success in a regenerative future. I spend time mentoring entrepreneurs and regularly lecture for Cranfield University’s Centre for Design, Innovation and Sustainability and at Exeter Business School, where I am on the Industrial Advisory Board. Currently I am also on advisory boards of The Sustainable Finance Centre, The Global CO2 Initiative and The Good Growth Company. My degree is in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford and I am Danish, having grown up in Copenhagen.
