Prior to this she was the Founder/Director of the Finance Dialogue, a think tank leveraging institutional investors to accelerate the net zero carbon transition. In her early career, Kelly spent 10 years as a banker, culminating in her role as the Head of South East Asian Private Banking for UBS out of Hong Kong. Kelly is a NED for Snowball Investment Management, and an Advisory Board member for the Institute of Innovation and Public Purpose at University College London. She lives in London with her twins, Marnie and Flynn.

Sonny Bardhan, Chair of P4NE’s Board said:

“We send Jo and her family all our very best wishes as she commences her maternity leave this month and welcome Kelly Clark as Interim Director. Kelly’s experience as a grant-maker in the new economy field is exceptional, including time as P4NE’s Chair, and we look forward to working with her over the coming months as she leads the organisation in Jo’s absence.”

Kelly Clark said:

“Partners for a New Economy is an inspiring collaborative of Funders, supporting an international portfolio of pioneering work. I am honoured to have this opportunity to serve as Interim Director and continue Jo’s and the P4NE team’s outstanding work.”
