Bain & Company announced that it has named François Faelli as its first-ever global managing partner of ESG. Faelli, the former head of the firm’s global Consumer Products practice, will oversee Bain & Company’s collective ambition of creating a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive world.
“In his new role, François will put his strategic expertise to work, helping our clients navigate the remarkable challenges and opportunities along their sustainability transformations,” said Manny Maceda, worldwide managing partner of Bain & Company.
In 2021, Bain & Company launched Further to apply Bain’s talent, energy and expertise to create transformative impact across three levels—as a partner to its clients, as a champion for global communities and as a firm. Today, more than 2,500 Bain team members are actively involved in this work. François will work closely with these teams to help Bain’s clients as they face increasing and often existential demands around sustainability, social impact, and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
François holds a Master's in Business and Economics from the Solvay Business School in Brussels, where he has been a professor of strategy since 2013.
