At GOOD, Nilesha will be responsible for leading the Client Services department, driving client growth, development and strengthening relationships. She will be a core member of the team securing commercial clients looking to do purpose properly.
Newly promoted Managing Director, Hanisha Kotecha said “We take hiring very seriously at GOOD because our values of being Good, Together and Brave are everything. Not only did Nilesha win us over with her sharp business acumen, but her collaborative attitude and enthusiasm for what we are trying to do are exactly the qualities we were hoping to find in the newest addition to our Senior Management Team. I’m very excited to be working with her.”
In her new role as MD, Hanisha is responsible for delivering GOOD’s three-year strategy and ambitions.
