We are excited to announce the addition of Brace Young to the Social Progress Imperative’s Board of Directors. Brace is currently a partner at Arabesque Asset Management—a global group of financial technology companies offering sustainable investment, advisory, and data services through advanced ESG and AI capabilities—and has extensive experience in both social impact and finance. Prior to joining Arabesque Partners in 2017, Brace served as the Chief Executive Officer at Eclat Impact and before that as a partner and Chief Executive Officer at Mariner Investment group. He has also served as a partner at Goldman Sachs and worked in New York, Tokyo, and London.
In addition to his financial career, Brace is also an experienced board leader, and currently chairs the boards of GWAVE, a wave-based renewable energy company, and Social Finance, Inc., a Boston-based nonprofit organization dedicated to mobilizing investment capital to drive social change. Additionally, he is also the former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Buckingham Browne & Nichols, a Massachusetts-based coeducational day school.
We look forward to the perspective that Brace will bring to our Board of Trustees as the Social Progress Imperative continues to embark on new groundbreaking projects, responding to global crises and, as always, using data to turn action into impact.
