Trillium Asset Management Announces Hiring of Jackson W. Robinson
SEPTEMBER 10, 2015 // BOSTON, MA: Trillium Asset Management (Trillium) is pleased to announce that Jack Robinson has joined the firm as Vice Chair and Portfolio Manager. Mr. Robinson has over three decades of experience working in the field of sustainable and responsible investing (SRI), most recently at Brown Advisory.
“I have known Jack Robinson for over two decades. When we worked together at Winslow Management, I learned that his long-standing commitment to SRI is built on a foundation in fundamental research, quantitative techniques, and a deep understanding of climate solutions,” said Matthew W. Patsky, Trillium’s CEO. “Jack’s experience is the perfect complement to our existing team.”
In 1983, Robinson founded Winslow Management with the mission of providing green investment services to individual and institutional clients. Winslow began to focus exclusively on green investing in 1991. Under his leadership, the firm developed a unique growth investing style and became widely recognized as a leader in the green investing field. In March 2009, Winslow merged with Brown Advisory, where Robinson served as Partner, Portfolio Manager, and Head of Sustainability Strategies before joining Trillium.
“Trillium’s first-rate investment performance, combined with its reputation for moving companies toward more sustainable business practices — along with the opportunity to work with Matt Patsky again — made this an easy decision for me,” said Mr. Robinson. “As interest in SRI and fossil fuel free investing grows, Trillium is in an enviable position of being a pioneer in the industry. I am excited to have the opportunity to use my experience in sustainable investing to contribute to the firm’s continued growth.”
Mr. Robinson serves on the Board of Abengoa Yield (NASDAQ: ABY) and as a Trustee of Suffield Academy, where he chairs the Investment Committee. He also serves on the advisory boards of Bambeco LLC, E|F|W (Energy, Food & Water) LLP, The American Council for Renewable Energy (ACORE), Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo’s Sustainability Working Group, and the Brown University Library.
