As the Vice President of Further, she is focused on embedding ESG into everything we do at Bain – including our commercial client work, our own industry-leading internal sustainability initiatives and our work in the community with leading social pioneers.
In her 25+ years at Bain, Martha has held numerous leadership positions. She is currently the leader of Bain’s Water Security Center of Excellence, which generates critical insights and mobilizes Bain’s expert ecosystem to support clients in their water journey and to advance global water stewardship.
Previously, Martha served as the Vice President of the Social Impact practice, helping oversee Bain’s $1.1bn commitment to pro bono consulting in four areas: Environment, Economic Development, Racial Equity & Social Justice, and Education. Martha also drove the creation of Bain’s Global Sustainability function, including our net-negative carbon emissions program, our annual ESG reporting efforts and our relationship with the UN Global Compact.
Martha is active in Bain’s Environment sector and has led work with multiple global nonprofits in the space, including The Nature Conservancy. She has deep expertise in water security, nature-based solutions, conservation, sustainability functions/operations, sustainability strategy, and ESG reporting.
Martha previously represented Bain for three years as an extern with the World Economic Forum, where she led a portfolio of consumer-focused industry verticals including food, consumer goods, retail, health, and tourism, launched three cross-sector coalitions including the WEF’s first business alliance on Food Systems in Africa, and served as the strategic advisor to the founder and Executive Chairman.
Martha holds an MBA from INSEAD and a BA in Russian Studies and Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia.
Based in Chamonix, France, Martha spends her time outside of work trying to keep pace with her family as they climb up and ski down some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. She eagerly awaits the day when her son will be old enough to learn to surf so the playing “field” will be more level.
