Project developer and carbon credit vendor South Pole Group has announced a series of new hires including two former emissions traders.

John Davis, who had worked as an emissions and energy sales trader at London-headquartered CF Partners from 2010 to Oct. 2015, has taken a role as South Pole’s director of financial industry in London, the Zurich-based firm said Tuesday.

“John will continue to develop the group’s offering of premium carbon credits and renewable energy certificates for the financial industry, as well as its prestigious suite of products for investment climate impact assessments,” South Pole said in a statement.

Michael Weber, who previously oversaw carbon trading at Energia and before that GreenStream – both Berlin-based roles – has joined South Pole as a senior key account manager for the energy sector, it added.

The company also hired Guillaume Goton, who joined South Pole’s financial industry team as a key account manager after working as an analyst at Credit Agricole Switzerland, and Chris Perceval, who will oversee the unit’s development and new client acquisition as director sustainable services based in Zurich.

In addition, Melanie Wilneder will start as a key account manager in London, focussing on sustainable supply chains and building on her previous work as business development manager for Sustainable Supply Chains at CDP.
