Daniel Klier was named CEO of advisory and data firm Arabesque S-Ray and president of The Arabesque Group, effective June, a spokesman said.
Mr. Klier will replace Andreas Feiner, the previous CEO of Arabesque S-Ray, who departed last month, the spokesman said. Details of Mr. Feiner's next appointment were not immediately available.
The role of a president of the group is new.
Mr. Klier will expand Arabesque S-Ray's ESG data, advisory and research services globally and lead the development of new tools for capturing, analyzing and reporting sustainability data.
"Technology is revolutionizing sustainable investment, and democratizing finance as a force for good to shape a more prosperous future for our society and the planet," Georg Kell, chairman of The Arabesque Group, said in a news release Friday. "I am thrilled to welcome Daniel to Arabesque, and believe that by adding his experience, leadership and vision to the team, we could not be better placed to meet our mission of mainstreaming sustainability across capital markets," he added.
Mr. Klier was previously group head of strategy and global head of sustainable finance HSBC in London. A spokeswoman declined to provide details of his replacement.
