Kimberly Griego-Kiel, MBA, is an Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF) who is committed to helping investors achieve financial success while simultaneously pursuing positive environmental, social, and economic change consistent with their values. She brings a socially engaged, people-oriented perspective to her work in the investment world.
In 2007, she founded Horizons Sustainable Financial Services. Now a leader in SRI herself, Kim mentors co-workers and employees who are equally committed to the values and goals of SRI. Originally from Oregon, Kim holds a B.A. from the College of Santa Fe and an MBA in Sustainable Business from Marylhurst University in Portland. She says her graduate studies broadened her understanding of how sustainability can encompass business and government policy. “This knowledge will help me enhance the opportunities for Horizons and our clients to participate in shareholder advocacy,” she says. “So we can help clients with shares in oil companies, for example, to advocate for institutional policy changes on fracking and other environmental issues. Together, we can make a difference in the process.”
Kim is Board President of the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce, which organizes frequent popular events that bring high-profile speakers, local business leaders, and community members together to discuss topics around sustainability, business, and sustainable city governance.
