As the impactvise Strategic Advisory Board’s founding member, Mr. O’Hearn will serve as a trusted voice with the business acumen required to guide impactvise’s next stage of development.

“I am passionate about using my experience and skills to help businesses fulfill their broader purpose to customers, employees, shareholders, and the communities they serve,” said Mr. O’Hearn. “Professional services firms, especially law firms, are catalytic to the integration of sustainable values into the strategy of global companies. impactvise is the leader in embedding ESG into the daily behaviors of the legal profession, and I am proud to actively support Yannick, Adrian, and the growing impactvise team in this exciting next phase of growth.”
impactvise co-founders Yannick Hausmann and Adrian Peyer said, “Stephen is an independent thinker and corporate veteran who shares our values of using business as a force for good. He brings a wealth of experience as a trusted advisor to senior executive management and to the boards of some of the world’s largest multinationals, helping to build brands and steering sustainable growth. Stephen’s ongoing support and insight has helped us shape our idea into a company, and we’re thrilled to have him as a sounding board and advisor for this next chapter.”
