BOULDER, Colorado, February 2022 – Entelligent, a leading independent climate data and analytics firm, announces the promotion of Pooja Khosla, Ph.D., to the position of Chief Innovation Officer. Khosla was previously the company’s executive vice president of client and product development and is an inventor of its patented Smart Climate® platform.
At the same time, Entelligent announced the promotion of Seann Stoner to Vice President of Product Management. Stoner has been with the company since its founding, most recently in the role of Vice President of Client Development.
The promotions come at a moment of high opportunity for Entelligent and the marketplace it serves. As the investment consequences of a global energy price shock continue to echo around the world, climate policies and frameworks worldwide are increasingly gaining the force of law for financial companies and corporations.
Entelligent’s product suite answers both needs. Its market-based solution is industry sector-agnostic and grounded in both climate and data science — focused on improving financial returns while driving capital to companies that effectively manage the turn to a low-carbon economy. Meanwhile, Entelligent’s patented methodology specifically meets regulators’ calls for scenario analysis and transparency.
“I’m delighted to entrust Seann and Pooja with these important new roles,” said Entelligent Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Thomas H. Stoner Jr. “As the company gains momentum, I know they will add force and focus to our work, advancing our strategy and honing our message — and helping us make good on our mission.”
As Chief Innovation Officer, a newly created role, Khosla is charged with advancing and articulating the company’s strategic vision both within the company and in the marketplace. Her areas of oversight include global brand-building, capital-raising and continuous product development. A data scientist and econometrician, Khosla was among the team that conceived Entelligent’s Smart Climate® technology. The team also included her mentor David Schimel, Ph.D., Entelligent’s Chairman and co-founder, and a 2007 Nobel Peace Prize winner for his work as an IPPC Convening Lead Author.
As vice president of product management, also a new role, Stoner is responsible for defining and advancing the company’s product roadmap and ensuring alignment with market and end-user needs. Over the past 18 months, the Smart Climate suite has rapidly expanded to meet the growing and increasingly specialized needs of institutions and professionals — across asset management, investment product development, quantitative investing, regulatory compliance and more. Stoner is a founding member of the Entelligent team specializing in climate science, climate finance and institutional sales, and played a critical role in building the company’s foundational partnerships and client relationships.
