GIIN appoints director of Membership
The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) has announced the appointment of Peter Malik to the position of director of Membership.
Malik will aid in shaping the strategic direction and growth of the GIIN’s global membership programs, which are a central component of the GIIN’s efforts to advance the field of impact investing.
Malik comes to the GIIN from The Nature Conservancy, where he served as managing director for Corporate Engagements and worked to forge agreements with corporate partners. Prior to this, he served as director for the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Center for Market Innovation, where his work centered on the formation of finance and business outreach efforts.
He had previously served as head of Emerging Markets Structured Credit Financing for JP Morgan Securities based in London, where he established a line of business that targeted young, medium-sized companies that lacked access to traditional capital markets. He has held positions with other large institutions including Credit Suisse Securities and Central Europe Trust.
“Peter’s addition is a fitting capstone to the expansion of our management team as we prepare to guide impact investing into its next stage of growth and development,” said Amit Bouri, CEO and co-founder of the GIIN.
“His long-standing commitment to positive change, his knowledge about environmental issues, and his experience at large financial institutions makes him a natural fit for our team. His talents are indispensable to our efforts to strengthen and grow our network of impact investors and accelerate the scale and effectiveness of the impact investing field as a whole,” Bouri said.
The GIIN is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing. It builds critical infrastructure and supports activities, education, and research that help accelerate the development of a coherent impact investing industry.
Its network of more than 220 institutions in 32 countries includes financial institutions, family offices, individual investors and fund managers.
