Meet the Plexus team

The Plexus team comprises individuals with extensive practical and technical experience in managing social and environmental risks in a corporate and project setting. Our team comprises senior professionals from the oil and gas and mining industries, multilateral financial institutions, government, academia and consultancy.

Plexus has a small executive team supported by a virtual global network of associate consultants, covering a wide range of disciplines ranging from anthropology, economics, law, political science, public health and sociology to engineering and natural sciences. Our team also has extensive experience in other areas including ESIA, biodiversity, environmental engineering, water resources and coastal management.

We combine in-country local and international expertise to ensure our advice is fully client focused. In addition, the senior consultants included in our proposals form the specific team who work directly with the client.

We regularly work with local specialists on specific projects and maintain relations with leading research centres and universities around the world. Our expertise and understanding of resource and infrastructure projects, and related project finance requirements, enable us to provide insight into complex policy and technical issues for boards, senior management, lenders and policy makers alike.
