Hannah-Polly Williams, who was senior director for ESG and sustainability for FTI Consulting in Paris, has joined Clayton Dubilier & Rice private equity firm as head of ESG in Europe.

She will be responsible for ESG strategy, integration and connectivity across the firm; external collaborations and reporting.

Vidi Banga, who chairs CD&R’s ESG initiatives, said the unit was formed to support portfolio companies and investment teams as they work to create value.

That portfolio includes Huntsworth healthcare communications & PR firm that New York-based CD&R took private via a $520M deal in 2020.

Prior to FTI Consulting, Williams was based in New York as global director of broad strategy & engagement for the International Rescue Committee, where she launched its DEI Action Plan.

She began her career in London working for Oxfam, Overseas Development Institute and the Allegra Foundation.
