“I am very excited to join the Leadership Team as this gives me an opportunity to work with leaders of similar consulting companies worldwide in achieving the goal of the Inogen Alliance. This also gives me an opportunity to understand the emerging trends in the areas of ESG, sustainability and risk consulting across varied industry sectors globally. As we serve a lot of Alliance customers in India, being part of the leadership team will provide insights to ensure execution excellence and partnership with clients in their transformation journey,” Ramesh Ramalingam.


Charlotte Buffoni is based in UK and has worked in consultancy for the past 17 years. She has been with Delta Simons for the last five years as Unit Director for their Environmental, Health and Safety team. Charlotte has extensive experience in delivering focused operational environmental, health and safety compliance assurance to the technology, financial, retail, construction and manufacturing sectors across EMEA and beyond and works on many key accounts coordinating consulting teams to deliver consistent support to clients.


“Having worked with colleagues from across the Inogen Alliance for the last five years on multiple client accounts I am thrilled to join the Leadership team and play an active part in shaping our strategy and services of the future. What makes us unique is the strong and trusted relationships between Associates and I look forward to working with my colleagues on both the Leadership Team and more widely within the Alliance moving forwards,” Charlotte Buffoni.


With over 20 years international consulting experience specializing in environmental and civil engineering, Casey Giberson leads Tonkin + Taylor’s partner programme in his role as Global Partnerships Lead. He brings a strategic focus to their center of excellence at the intersection of business relationships, technology, geopolitical complexity and how these changing conditions give rise to new customer-centric business models. Most recently he shaped, guided and grew T+T’s new advisory business into a team of 25+ senior consultants. This team guides customers through the emerging and complex issues facing our communities, people, and built and natural infrastructure.


As a new Associate, joining the Inogen Alliance feels like a natural extension of the T+T family. Building on the successes of the Alliance I look forward to working with the Leadership Team to stretch our thinking on what we can be together, and position the Inogen Alliance as the leading global Environmental, Health, Safety and Sustainability consulting brand,” Casey Giberson.
