Calgary, Canada – Radicle Group Inc. (Radicle) Chairman and CEO, Ed Alfke, announced today that Radicle’s Founder, Alastair Handley, will be shifting focus to dedicate more of his time to becoming Radicle’s chief evangelist alongside his sustainability sector development priorities. These include building out the Radicle Foundation, deepening awareness on the role emissions offsets have in corporations’ sustainability strategies, advising government and NGOs, in addition to his increasing engagement in the global forum on tackling climate change. As Founder, he will continue to serve as a Director and strategic advisor to leaders in the company.  

Saj Shapiro steps into the role of President, expanding his responsibilities beyond those as Chief Operating Officer to complete an executive team adjustment.

“Saj’s open style and deep leadership skills allow him to integrate our team’s burgeoning culture with global operations excellence to deliver a winning business strategy that enables profitable corporate sustainability for our clients,” commented Alfke when announcing the change.

“It’s a tremendous, somewhat daunting journey we’re on as we wrestle prosperity and the climate change challenge. Yet balance is possible. This requires an ecosystem of varied solutions, and Radicle plays its part. The team’s work continues to expand in helping solve society’s most pressing challenge,” states Handley. He adds, “As carbon markets expand globally, creative financing will release capital to enable more widespread deployment of emission reducing technologies. I seek to empower corporations to leverage such hybrid strategies, blending rigorous data processing, sustainable finance, and leveraging emissions markets. The space where sustainability and margins meet fascinates me.”

Radicle’s Board of Directors continues to benefit from Alastair’s industry knowledge and Saj’s leadership, CFO Dwayne LaMontagne’s financial acumen and CEO Ed Alfke’s vision. Radicle will continue to benefit from all their ongoing vigour and advice to accelerate emissions reductions at scale.
