Based in New York, Youmans will focus on enhancing the activities of Hermes EOS in the North American market and will report to Bruce Duguid, Head of Stewardship, Hermes EOS.
 
In this role, Youmans will be responsible for researching, planning and carrying out corporate, public policy and best practice engagement work in North America. This includes planning and executing voting activities and providing controversial company risk screening services.
 
Youmans joins from the CECP: The CEO Force for Good, a CEO-led coalition that helps companies transform their social strategy.

Tim’s experience and knowledge of corporate best practice and governance are a valuable asset as we continue to grow Hermes EOS’ presence in the market, in support of the new Framework for US Stewardship and Governance, recently launched by US institutional investors.”
