Sustainable investment manager Mirova names new CEO


Mirova, a sustainable investment manager headquartered in France, has named Zineb Bennani as the company’s new CEO and global head of business development.

Prior to taking the position as CEO and global business development ahead, Bennani served as the COO for Mirova. The company is looking to establish itself further in the US market.

Established in the United States in 2017, Mirova’s subsidiary has a staff of more than 25 people and currently manages $8.4bn in particular through the development of its global sustainable equity strategy.

Mirova claims its global growth will be strategic over the next decade. As part of this development plan, the US markets are key in raising assets under management for the global equities strategy, the expansion of impact investing and the development of this private assets offer.

Bennani’s appointment will be effective from May 2023. She brings a wealth of experience and expertise from her nearly 17 years at the company and within Natixis Investment Managers, which will bolster the next phase of growth for Mirova’s US operations and further enhance its client experience.

She is currently Chief Operating and Development Officer of Mirova and has served as Deputy CIO and Equity Portfolio Manager, Head of Governance Research and Engagement, and in other investing, research, and client relations roles.

Current interim CEO at Mirova US Ritesh Shah will evolve into a role as Mirova’s Global Head of Corporate Development, in charge of managing the company’s future corporate developments. Bennani and Shah will continue reporting to Guillaume Abel, Deputy CEO of Mirova.
