San Francisco, July 21, 2020 – Sonen Capital LLC, an investment management firm focused exclusively on impact and sustainable investing and advice, is pleased to announce that Isabelle Hau has joined its Board of Directors. Ms. Hau brings over 20 years of experience in impact investing, finance, and venture capital. She has spent much of her career focused on building the impact investing field and making high quality education accessible for children as a means to creating lifelong opportunities.
Isabelle is a Partner at Imaginable Futures, a global philanthropic firm that believes learning has the power to unlock human potential. She was part of the founding team that helped launch the firm in early 2020. Prior to that, she was an Investment Partner at Omidyar Network, where she was responsible for its global portfolio of impact investments and led the firm’s US education strategy. She also held positions at ImpactAssets, a non-profit organization focused on increasing capital flows in impact investing, and at Morgan Stanley where she invested in and helped grow start-up companies, and supported larger corporations through IPOs, capital raising and strategic acquisitions. She has held various for-profit and non-profit governance roles.
“Isabelle is an accomplished leader in the field of impact investing, whose passion for advancing education is critically important during this time of extreme income inequality and lack of opportunity for the underserved community,” said Stuart Davidson, Sonen’s Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board. “Isabelle’s work in the impact field will be a tremendous asset for Sonen and we are confident that we will benefit from her insights, judgment and counsel.”
“I am thrilled to join Sonen’s Board,” said Ms. Hau. “During these unsettling times on so many social and environmental fronts, Sonen’s work is more important than ever. I am excited to be part of a company that has such tremendous opportunity to improve the lives of people around the world.”
