Christian Brothers Investment Services (CBIS), a leader in socially responsible investing (SRI) for Catholic institutions, announced today that Julie Tanner, Assistant Director of Socially Responsible Investing, has been named to the Governing Board of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, the leading coalition of faith-based investors.
“CBIS is proud to have been a part of ICCR for most of its 40-year history,” said Br. Michael O’Hern, President and CEO of CBIS. “We became members of ICCR in 1987, and Julie is the third member of the CBIS team to serve on the Governing Board. I am thrilled that Julie will play a part in guiding this influential organization into its next 40 years.”
Ms. Tanner joined Christian Brothers Investment Services (CBIS) in 2002 and is the Assistant Director of Socially Responsible Investing. She is responsible for engaging with boards and corporate management to encourage the development and implementation of robust and substantive environmental, human rights and corporate governance policies and practices.

Julie is widely quoted in the media on corporate governance and corporate responsibility issues, is a frequent panelist at major ESG conferences, and writes extensively on the topic, including co-authoring the recent report, “Effective Supply Chain Accountability: Investor Guidance on Implementation of The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act and Beyond.” Prior to joining CBIS, Ms. Tanner spent ten years in the financial services industry, most recently with JP Morgan Chase, before moving to lead the Finance and Environment Program at National Wildlife Federation.
