Spencer Powell
Performance Lead at The Impact Management Project


Spencer oversees the performance workstream for the IMP Structured Network. In this role, he provides technical assistance to the Network Members that are setting sustainability standards for measuring and reporting impact. This is part of a collective effort to articulate the components of a comprehensive corporate reporting solution that would connect financial and sustainability GAAP.

Prior to joining the IMP in August 2019, Spencer most recently worked as the Finance Manager for a publicly traded mining company. His stint in the corporate world made him keenly aware of the responsibility that organisations have towards measuring and managing their impact. This experience triggered his decision to pursue an MBA with a focus on social impact at IE Business School. During the programme he worked as a consultant in Johannesburg for a local impact investor.

Spencer was previously a Senior Accountant with KPMG’s Toronto office in the Energy and Natural Resources Group, where he specialised in acquisitions, consolidations, valuations, and public offerings. During his time at KPMG he became Chartered Professional Accountant and legacy Chartered Accountant (CPA, CA) accredited.
