Susana McDermottDirector of Communications

Susana has over 25 years of experience in communications in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors in the U.S. and overseas. As ICCR’s Director of Communications, she is responsible for managing relationships with the press, developing strategic communications for the organization and ICCR’s priority programs, and overseeing ICCR’s suite of internal and external communications channels. Prior to joining ICCR, Susana worked on a wide variety of consumer goods and services accounts in the travel, food, and apparel industries at Publicis Groupe and Saatchi and Saatchi, Inc.

Susana credits her eight years of expat experience in Europe and Latin America with instilling in her a sense of global citizenship and igniting a passion to work in the nonprofit sector. She considers it a privilege to help tell the remarkable stories of ICCR members’ advocacy to catalyze positive change at some of the world’s largest companies. “The models of sustainable investing and shareholder engagement were first pioneered by our members over 50 years ago and the fact that these practices are now mainstreamed in global financial markets is a testament to their power and success”.
