Hannah Gilkes

Director, Head of ESG

My area of expertise

Advising on strategic growth in complex jurisdictions. I’ve focused on sub-Saharan Africa for the past fifteen years and led more than 500 investigations across the continent.

Why I love what I do

I’m half Ethiopian and wholly committed to supporting development and investment across sub-Saharan Africa. I feel very lucky to have found a job that allows me to do this while learning so much about a continent that is equally diverse, complex and rewarding.

What sets Risk Advisory apart

A genuinely entrepreneurial mindset. The quality of our work sits on the shoulders of our ability to innovate – whether by finding new sources, discovering different ways through complex problems or seeking out interesting opportunities.
