She will be responsible for developing strategies, policies and sustainability initiatives to accelerate strategic growth, and has defined three core objectives: identifying large scale opportunities; overseeing programs that deliver positive and tangible environmental and social impact; turn Maverick into a driving force in the sustainability space.

“My recent experience in media, particularly on the publishing side, has illuminated the growing need for corporations to shift their priorities towards sustainability and social impact. I am excited by the opportunity to activate these trends and work alongside an industry leader like Guy. He has given me a broad mandate to oversee sustainability and strategy under the Maverick brand and I look forward to playing an important role within the organization”, said Keating.
