ESG and technology expert Katie Whipp has joined Trustek, a specialist consultancy for real estate owners and occupiers that focuses on the sourcing and deployment of smart building technology and systems.

Formerly head of UK and Ireland at ESG technology platform Deepki, Whipp joins a management team led by Trustek founders Freddie Pritchard-Smith and Michael Crawford.

“Whipp has been integral to Deepki’s expansion into the UK and beyond, delivering outperformance year on year and will be a tremendous asset as our business continues to develop,” said Pritchard-Smith.

“Her prior experience at CBRE and Cluttons has given her a deep understanding of UK real estate and the challenges that face owners and occupiers who are looking to deploy smart building tech that can respond to new working modes, boost efficiency and deliver cost savings.”

Whipp said: “ESG requirements and the pathway to net zero are converging with the smart building tech that can play a major role in delivering sustainable practice and benefits. I want to help clients find long-term solutions that can evolve to meet changing operational and business needs.”
