We are very pleased to announce that Jim Sloane has joined the WCMC Board of Trustees.

Jim has over 30 years’ experience in business consultancy, working for a number of multinational and UK-based organisations. He was a partner at Deloitte for almost 20 years, and has also held the position of Vice Chairman and a variety of senior national and international management roles. Prior to Deloitte he worked for the consultancies Robson Rhodes and Arthur Andersen.

Since 2011, Jim has combined an ongoing advisory role with Deloitte with a variety of interests in the environment, education and charity sectors both in the UK and internationally. Jim also serves as a senior advisor to Conservation Capital’s leadership team, an organisation that develops financial and business-driven solutions to support the world’s most important conservation areas.

Dr Robin Bidwell CBE, Chair of WCMC Board of Trustees, said: “We are delighted that Jim has agreed to join our Board. He brings a wealth of organisational experience as well as a real interest in conservation issues. We are looking forward to his input and support in addressing the major biodiversity challenges that are facing the world.”

Jim Sloane said: "This is a time of absolute urgency for the planet – next year global leaders will come together to agree on the plan for nature, and it is organisations such as UNEP-WCMC that will help ensure that this plan is both actionable and measurable. I am excited to join the team at this momentous time, and look forward to helping WCMC harness their 40 years' of experience to face this challenge."
