Bloomberg expands Global Diversity & Inclusion team

Erika Irish Brown, Bloomberg's Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion, today announced two hires to the company’s growing Global D&I team. Pamela Hutchinson will lead the D&I effort in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Hayden Majajas will oversee the Asia-Pacific region.

“Bringing on two highly-seasoned professionals like Pamela and Hayden allows us to make a significant stride in our commitment to D&I at Bloomberg,” said Brown. “With this expanded team in place, we increase our global footprint and gain an enhanced ability to act locally and meet the D&I needs of each region as appropriate.”

Hutchinson will join on March 14th in Bloomberg's London office. Since 2011, she has worked at Northern Trust as the company’s Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer for EMEA and APAC. With more than 20 years of experience in managing diversity within the engineering and financial services sectors, she has worked at firms including Deutsche Bank, Barclays, and Goldman Sachs.

In 2014, Hutchinson was awarded a spot on Timewise’s Power Part Time List. That same year, she was recognized by the Black British Business Awards as a Financial Services Leader Finalist. In 2013, the European Diversity Awards named her as an Inspirational Role Model of the Year Finalist.

  Majajas joins Bloomberg's Singapore office today. A graduate of the Chuo University Graduate School of Law in Tokyo, Japan, Majajas brings experience from both the legal industry and the financial services sector. A 12-year veteran of the D&I space, he has been a D&I leader at Lehman Brothers, Nomura, and UBS. He most recently served as a D&I Director at BP.

Majajas’ work has been recognised by various organizations globally including Best Private Bank – LGBT & Diversity Issues in 2012 by Asian Private Banker magazine; Champion for the Advancement of Women in 2013 by the South China Morning Post; Leadership in Diversity in 2014 by the British Chamber of Commerce Singapore; and most recently, the World of Difference Award in 2015 by the International Alliance for Women.

“Bloomberg's commitment to Diversity & Inclusion is a broad-based global business imperative," said Bloomberg Chairman Peter Grauer. "We're focused on attracting, retaining and developing the best people globally to ensure that we outperform in all we do. We are very excited by the addition of Pamela and Hayden to our global D&I team."

In their new roles, Hutchinson and Majajas will work in concert with Brown to help lead the company's global D&I initiative, and serve as thought partners and leaders on the strategy and vision for their respective regions.
