MHA names new ESG technical director

Hopkins will play a ‘leading role’ in advising businesses on ESG assurance, strategy, governance, risk management and disclosures.

MHA Macintyre Hudson has appointed Jose De Mayne Hopkins, formerly of KPMG, as ESG technical director.

The appointment comes as its sustainability and ESG team rolls out an “enhanced” offering to clients, which has been in development for the past 18 months.

Hopkins is an ESG risk assessment expert with more than 11 years of experience auditing large global listed groups and complex entities within the agricultural, renewable, technology and mining sectors.

Prior to joining MHA MacIntyre Hudson he was a senior manager at KPMG UK where he used his technical understanding of sustainability and environmental matters to support internal teams and clients on climate risk, accounting, assurance and financial reporting standards (including TCFD reporting).

As ESG technical director, the firm said Hopkins will play a “leading role” in advising businesses on ESG assurance, strategy, governance, risk management and disclosures. He will report to partners Andrew Moyser and Mark Lumsdon-Taylor who lead MHA’s sustainability and ESG team.

Hopkins said: “It is an exciting time to be joining MHA MacIntye Hudson’s sustainability and ESG team. The firm has built on its existing strengths and now boasts a comprehensive and unique ESG offering, with the flexibility to accommodate the divergent needs of smaller SMEs and larger corporates.

“As the new lead on the technical side of ESG and ESG reporting, I look forward to bringing my experience, gained over the years, to bear on supporting clients’ needs.”

Mark Lumsdon-Taylor, partner and co-head of the sustainability and ESG team, added: “Jose’s experience makes him someone who fits perfectly with our pragmatic, turn-key delivery of sustainability and ESG services. His wealth of knowledge on the technical side of ESG is incredibly valuable to both the team and our clients and we look forward to working with him.”
