People on the Move: Girish Ganesan, S&P Global’s New Senior Vice President, People

Publicly traded financial conglomerate S&P Global — majority owner of the S&P Dow Jones Indices — has announced Girish Ganesan as the company’s new Senior Vice President, People. Ganesan was previously the Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion and Head of U.S. Talent at TD Bank Group (No. 14 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2021), where he worked for three years.

In a LinkedIn post celebrating a resource group he had participated in as part of his new role with S&P, Ganesan wrote, “I joined S&P four weeks ago. It was clear to me through the recruitment process that we deeply care about #diversity and #inclusion where everyone can thrive and bring their true, whole, human self to work. There is a popular saying that [when] diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance. The fact that being so new to the organization, I was asked to share my journey is a tangible example of our inclusive values and people-first focus.”

Ganesan also added, “It is simple: when you lead in inclusion, you win collectively as an organization.” 

Prior to joining S&P, Ganesan was responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of all diversity and inclusion strategies, tactics and programs for TD.
