Co-Chair: Paolo Fresia
After a brief stint as bond trader with Goldman Sachs and a year in Haiti with Doctors Without Borders, Paolo lived in Asia for the past two years before coming to HKS. He most recently worked at boutique CSR consultancy BSR, focusing on corporate sustainability strategy and integration. His projects have focused on working with global companies on opportunities in the Myanmar and Laos garment, forestry, and telecommunications industries, especially around labor and human rights topics. Moreover, Paolo has recently founded an impact investment fund with five friends, and therefore has a keen interest in the social enterprise ecosystem. Paolo is excited to Co-Chair the B&G PIC and looks forward to connecting with all those interested in sustainable development.

Questions? The other Co-Chair, members of the Executive Committee, and Topical Committees will be finalized in the fall. Until then, please email Paolo over the summer for further information, to learn how to get involved, or with any questions or suggestions: Paolo_Fresia@hks17.harvard.edu
