General Manager and CFO
Yolanda Duperret has extensive experience in developing budgets and working collaboratively with organizational leaders to create strategies, policies, and procedures in support of achieving company goals. She has over 20 years of solid financial reporting and interpretive analysis which makes her particularly adept at efficiently identifying company strengths and weaknesses and implementing solutions throughout the organization at the level of detail necessary to influence sustainable change. Prior to IPS, she worked in the international financial markets and traveled extensively throughout Latin America as Sales Business Development director for CoBank where she was responsible for a $1 billion loan portfolio. She holds a Masters Degree in Finance/Accounting from Thunderbird School of Global Management and is fluent in Spanish, French, and Portuguese. She is an avid supporter of anything that ends with “ies”: babies, puppies, bees, (and batteries). To that end, she enjoys spending time with her four children (two of them are furry), beekeeping, and aligning herself with organizations such as CO Rising and 350.org to support common-sense measures that protect the health and safety of our communities and transition them sustainably towards a renewable economy.
