CamberView Partners, LLC, the leading global source of independent, investor-led advice for public companies on shareholder activism and investor engagement, is pleased to announce that Harry Etra has joined the firm as a Principal. Mr. Etra has extensive experience working with issuers to develop best practices and reporting frameworks for environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives which will enhance CamberView’s industry-leading sustainability, shareholder engagement and corporate governance practices.
“Knowing how to measure, manage and communicate the risk and opportunity of sustainability initiatives has become an integral part of how companies build successful relationships with their investors,” said Abe M. Friedman, CEO of CamberView Partners. “Harry has deep experience helping companies navigate this increasingly complex landscape. His expertise will be a valuable resource for our clients on a range of environmental, social and governance topics and complement our existing industry-leading shareholder engagement and governance practice.”
Before joining CamberView, Mr. Etra was a Director at CodeGreen Solutions, where he advised clients on ESG best practices with a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency. His experience includes working with clients to develop annual sustainability reports and earn recognition for their ESG initiatives through reporting programs such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), and the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB). Mr. Etra holds an M.B.A. from Columbia Business School and a bachelor’s degree in history from Yale University.
“As sustainability considerations continue to come into focus for fundamental investors, activists, and index investors, it has become increasingly important for companies to be able to address the full range of ESG topics driving the sustainability conversation today,” said Mr. Etra. “Understanding how to engage with and effectively deliver a sustainability message that resonates with investors is an increasingly vital element of building strong relationships with shareholders. I am thrilled to join the growing team at CamberView to help issuers expand the conversation with their investors.”
