MSCI : Appoints Chief Responsibility Officer

11/08/2018 | 09:04am EDT

MSCI Inc. (NYSE: MSCI), a leading provider of indexes, portfolio construction, risk management tools and services for global investors, announced today that Diana Tidd has been appointed Chief Responsibility Officer, effective immediately.

As Chief Responsibility Officer, Ms. Tidd will work closely with MSCI’s senior leadership team to guide and communicate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies for the firm, as well as oversee the governance structure for the Company’s ESG practices. This will include how MSCI can further reduce its environmental impact and carbon footprint through its business strategy.

In this newly created position, Ms. Tidd will continue to serve in her current role as Head of Index and member of the MSCI Executive Committee, reporting to Baer Pettit, President of MSCI.

“MSCI has a wealth of experience as an ESG leader from a research and index perspective, and we have reached a stage in the company’s evolution where we need to better communicate how we follow the principles we have established,” said Henry A. Fernandez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Diana has established the MSCI ESG Indexes as recognized industry leaders with asset owners and asset managers. Her appointment underscores MSCI’s long-term commitment to the environment, sound social practices, such as diversity and inclusion, talent development and employee engagement, and best-in-class corporate governance structures.”

Ms. Tidd joined MSCI in 1999 and as Head of Index is responsible for all aspects of product management and business strategy for the MSCI indexes. During her tenure at MSCI, Ms. Tidd has served in a variety of roles, including Head of Americas Client Coverage. Prior to joining MSCI, she worked at Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. and started her career at Bankers Trust Co.

Ms. Tidd is Co-President of Women in ETFs (WE) and serves on the Board of Directors of WE and West Africa Village Education (WAVE). She is also a founder of MSCI’s global Women’s Leadership Forum. Ms. Tidd graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from Colgate University and received a Master’s Degree in Latin American Studies from Stanford University.
