Consultancy doubles team as expansion plans unfold

The Biodiversify team

A Nottingham conservation consultancy, Biodiversify has experienced rapid growth within the past eighteen months, wit staff numbers now standing at 18.

Founded in 2018 by doctors Samuel Sinclair and Michael Burgass, the team has doubled in size.

Their initial hire, Dr. Cecilia Larrossa, joined less than four years ago as the associate director for research and development, supporting clients like Kering and Holcim.

Cristina Secades, formerly of BirdLife International, joined as principal consultant this year focusing on developing Biodiversify’s mining supply chain strategy.

Additionally, Drs. Stefanie Kaupa and Beth Robinson have joined to assist in implementing biodiversity strategies for companies.

Jack Jarvie and Joanne Crighton come aboard as data analyst and head of finance, enhancing the consultancy’s capabilities.

To support further growth, Catherine Bryan and Nigel Verdon join as board advisors, bringing expertise in governance and fintech.

They will help launch NatureSearch, a platform aiding property developers in understanding biodiversity requirements for planning and decision-making.

Samuel Sinclair, co-founder and director at Biodiversify, said: “Over the past five years we’ve witnessed the business undergo meteoric growth. Some of the brightest, most passionate, and dedicated minds in biodiversity and conservation science have joined us at Biodiversify to provide the expert advice that is needed to help the private sector understand and improve their relationship with nature.”

Nigel Verdon, board advisor at Biodiversify, said: “Biodiversify really is one of a kind.  The company is super client centric, working hand in hand with companies to create practical and business aligned strategies to sustain our precious natural world. It is no wonder the business has attracted amazing talent in the team over these past 18 months. I’m looking forward to bringing my own passion for nature to the firm’s next stage of development.”
