With a strong background in HR leadership and a passion for fostering a positive and inclusive work culture, Schaefer is well-equipped to lead GeoComply’s people-centric initiatives. Her expertise in talent management, organizational development, and employee engagement will be invaluable in attracting top talent and nurturing a high-performing workforce that drives GeoComply’s innovation and success.

The appointments of Drake and Schaefer means that women will account for over 60 percent of GeoComply’s leadership team. The company recently won the Diversity & Inclusion Award at the EGR North America Awards, and its commitment to diversity continues to set it apart in the technology industry.
