People Moves: Redwheel adds powerhouse duo to sustainability team
Press Release - Redwheel, formerly RWC Partners, has appointed Olivia Seddon-Daines and Katherine Velasquez Rodriguez to its sustainability team, as CEO Tord Stallvik continues to push the firm's sustainable agenda throughout the business.
Seddon-Daines joins as a senior specialist, while Velasquez joins as a responsible investment associate.
In January, the firm established a centralised sustainability function, marking the occasion with the appointment of Chris Anker as its head of sustainability.
