TMF Group appoints Flavia Micilotta to lead ESG offering

25 November 2021

TMF Group, a leading professional and financial services firm, has bolstered its support for clients looking to develop their ESG plans with the strategic appointment of Flavia Micilotta as Director, ESG solutions.

Ms Micilotta brings almost 20 years of experience in sustainability, working to incorporate ESG considerations and decision-making into business and financial activities. As member of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG), she has also supported policymakers in defining the basis for the Sustainable Finance Action Plan in 2018.

Over the years, Ms Micilotta has gathered deep knowledge of the funds industry. For example, in her role as Executive Director of Eurosif (the pan-European sustainable and responsible investment - SRI - organisation), she worked with several European banks and asset managers to help them streamline their Responsible Investment approach.

In addition, Ms Micilotta has worked with regulators (EFRAG, EIOPA, the European Commission), focusing on ensuring that the industry’s needs and capabilities are properly reflected in polices, and standards are developed around sustainable finance.

Prior to joining TMF Group, she led the sustainability practice at Deloitte in Luxembourg. Before that she was the Director of the Luxembourg Green Exchange.

At TMF Group she will report to Andrew O’Shea, Global Head of Fund Services, who commented: “We are delighted to welcome Flavia to the team to lead this important area of our business. Her expertise and experience will enable us to evolve our ESG offering and support our client base in this space.”

ESG enhancement is vitally important to TMF Group as demonstrated by the company’s recent Ecovadis silver medal award, as its appointment as UN-PRI signatories. The business is committed to remaining at the forefront of this rapidly evolving space by supporting its clients and making an increasingly complex world simple for them.

Angelica Thijssen, Chief Human Resources Officer at TMF Group, added: “Alongside our efforts to continuously improve the ESG performance of TMF Group, we want to be an ESG accelerator in the marketplace and provide a one-stop shop for ESG services. This is a significant focus for the business as a whole and we are investing in a number of initiatives to ensure we deliver on this.”

Talking about her appointment, Ms Micilotta stated: “I’m excited about the future with TMF Group and am keen to find more ways to enhance and embed ESG into all activities.  The business is in a unique position to support its clients around ESG, maximising the potential of sustainable finance.

She adds: “Its commitment to developing its ESG practice, as well as its new role as a UN-PRI signatory and Ecovadis medal winner, demonstrates this.”
