The following announcement was provided by Pathfinder International:
Pathfinder International is pleased to welcome two new members to its Board of Directors, Daniel Lamaute and Jameela Pedicini.
Daniel Lamaute is an entrepreneur with a background in finance, investments, and international development. Jameela Pedicini is the executive director of Climate Finance Initiatives at Bloomberg. Together they bring a fresh perspective to sustainable international investments.
In the 1990s, Daniel founded Lamaute Capital, an investment company focused on small and medium-sized enterprises, pioneering in B2B financial platforms, where he served as the CEO for over 15 years. Most recently, Lamaute served as a Fulbright Specialist in South Korea, providing strategic direction to Solbridge International School of Business Center for Entrepreneurship, and as an independent consultant establishing a stock exchange in Cambodia.
With more than 10 years working with institutional investors on sustainable finance and impact investing, Pedicini combines a personal passion for sexual and reproductive health and rights with a unique understanding of environmental, social, and governance investing. Pedicini is a member of the board of directors of the International Women’s Health Coalition and the Crane Institute of Sustainability.
“In a world where women’s health and the environment are growing more deeply connected, we need leaders who are knowledgeable about investing that fosters gender equality and climate resilience,” said Board Chair Roslyn Watson. “Jameela and Daniel will play an important role in furthering our connections with partners who will work with us to make real progress in these areas. They are among six new board members recruited over the past year who have deepened the geopolitical perspectives, and increased geographical, racial, and professional diversity of our board.”
