Mirova, an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers specializing in sustainable finance, has appointed Lindsey Apple as proxy voting and engagement lead. Based in Boston, Apple will collaborate with portfolio managers and management on voting and engagement decisions in the United States and Europe.
She will lead the firm’s voting policy as regulations, market practices and its own philosophy evolve. She will also carry out Mirova’s voting process during voting season while developing a dialogue with regulators, investors, and clients.
Apple worked for MFS Investment Management for eight years. In her earlier career, she was an attorney with Kerbey Harrington Pinkard. She also provided legal counsel for the formation of non-profit green startup corporations at Green Pro Bono.
She will report to Mathilde Dufour, head of global sustainability research for listed asset, and Amber Baker, deputy chief executive officer of Mirova US.
