Céline Bak

Céline Bak is the President of Analytica Advisors. In 2007 she recognized that innovation-based industries were poorly represented through existing primary economic research and concluded that this lack of evidence distorted the whole lifecycle of innovation-based companies, from incubation and capital raising to securing domestic reference customers and delivering 21st century productivity solutions. In order to change this, she has authored and published five annual evidence-based national reports that have catalyzed the growth of Canada's emerging energy and water technology industry. Her research has changed the investment and policy landscape, and has formed the basis of hundreds of millions of dollars in catalytic public program investment. She is engaged in consultancy projects addressing finance, innovation and trade across Canada and around the world.

Céline has worked in 25 countries and a dozen industries first as a Principal of A.T. Kearney, a global management consulting firm, and later as an operating executive in two high growth Canadian technology companies, Solect Technology group and Bridgewater Systems, both of which were acquired by Amdocs (DOX). She is now a Senior Fellow in the Global Economy Program at the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), located in Waterloo Canada, where she leads research on sustainable finance.  She chairs the Core Evaluation Team for Genome Canada's Genomic Applications Partnership Program and sits as a director for the Canadian Coalition for Green Finance (CC4GF) and for Green Centre Canada. Her leadership roles have included Chair of the Clean Technology Private Sector Advisory Group and senior advisor for Global Affairs Canada.

Céline has been recognized as a Clean16 honoree for her contribution to developing capital markets for sustainability in Canada, as well as by Nature Canada as one of Canada's Women of Nature.

 She lives in Ottawa with her husband Antonio Cazorla Sanchez.  They have three daughters. 

Céline is fluent in both French and Spanish.
