Arina oversees all of Green Alpha’s marketing activities, translating complicated investment philosophy, process and portfolio construction topics into materials that those outside of Green Alpha can understand and embrace. She works closely with internal team members and external public relations experts to ensure that communication of Green Alpha’s vision is delivered in a clear and compelling way. As a member of Green Alpha’s collaborative team, Arina contributes to important initiatives firmwide, including voting all client proxies consistent with extensively detailed proxy voting guidelines.
She first joined Green Alpha as a summer intern in 2015. Arina recognized that the private sector had begun to tackle systemic challenges like climate change, so she was drawn to Green Alpha’s pragmatic, innovation-focused approach to investing in the de-carbonizing economy. The team was thrilled to welcome her full-time after she graduated in 2016.
Arina graduated cum laude from Colorado College and received a B.A. with distinction in International Political Economy. For her senior thesis, she synthesized her background in political economy, Russian studies, and environmental studies by analyzing Russia’s development strategies in the Arctic.
Having grown up in Washington State, Arina finds great joy in the outdoors and can be found backpacking, skiing, mountain biking, and playing tennis in her spare time. When not adventuring outside, she enjoys exploring art museums, sampling local bakeries, and practicing her Russian language skills.
