Voluntary carbon markets-focused finance organization Climate Impact Partners announced today the appointment of Sheri Hickok as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer.

Hickok joins the company from GE Renewable Energy where she most recently served as VP and CEO of the international onshore wind business, and was responsible for the growth and implementation of GE Onshore wind turbines in across regions including APAC, MENAT, LATAM, EU and SSA. Prior to joining GE, Hickok held a series of senior engineering, supply chain, and product management roles at General Motors. She is also a member of the World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders and is a three-time DAVOS panelist on urban mobility, the future of production, and women in tech.

Hickok said:

“I am delighted to join a company with such amazing impact where I can apply years of operational leadership to help take us to the next level. I have spent my career driving outcomes in the fast-changing automotive and energy industries, transforming to meet the needs of the greener future we all need. I have countless examples of witnessing the extraordinary results of talented people working together towards high-impact goals and the motivation it brings.”

In her new role as CEO, Hickok will focus on the continued global growth of Climate Impact Partners and its mission to work alongside climate-leading businesses and high-impact projects to drive the global transformation to a low-carbon economy.

Hickok succeeds Vaughan Lindsay who led the organization through the merger of Natural Capital Partners and ClimateCare.

Kash Pandya, Board Chair of Climate Impact Partners, said:

“The board would like to thank Vaughan for all his work as CEO of ClimateCare and Climate Impact Partners and wish him every success for the future. Vaughan remains a strong supporter of our mission, as the company continues to deliver significant positive impacts globally and moves nearer to its much-needed objective of 1 billion tonnes of emission reductions by 2030.”
