Jenny Brusgul joined the global consulting solutions practice of CohnReznick, an advisory, assurance and tax firm in the United States, as managing director and ESG practice leader. In this newly created role, Brusgul will help CohnReznick clients manage ESG risk and develop and implement ESG strategies that deliver value to their stakeholders.
Based in the Washington, D.C. metro area, Brusgul comes to CohnReznick with extensive experience as a transformative ESG strategist and environmental sustainability leader. She has helped businesses in many industries drive change by embedding ESG into their ‘business as usual’ while also bringing cross-functional teams together to scale ESG client solutions.
Brusgul was recruited by a board member to develop the strategy and lead the execution of the firm’s U.S. ESG business. This included creating multifaceted client-facing solutions, establishing go-to-market protocols, directing training programs for more than 29,000 employees, cultivating alliance partners and developing thought leadership and insights programs to capitalize on the growing ESG market. Her efforts helped the firm build its ESG practice from the ground up.
“CohnReznick’s impressive, long-standing commitment to ESG and innovation is evident across its many practices and service lines,” Brusgul said. “I am further impressed by the firm’s Gamechangers in ESG Awards program and its goal of helping to elevate the stories of forward-thinking, purpose-driven companies and students who are embracing ESG. And so,
I am thrilled to join CohnReznick and look forward to collaborating with both colleagues and clients to advance ESG principles in both businesses and the community.”
