Stewart Sarkozy-Banoczy – Managing Director

Stewart has spent the last ten years dedicated to mainstreaming resilience and precovery across sectors and themes, with a passion for the ocean, water systems and breaking down silos between funders, practitioners, and policy makers, especially for urban, island, Indigenous and coastal contexts. Stewart was Global Director, Policy and Investments and co-founder at the Resilient Cities Network, the evolved, city-led network of the 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) program, creating the RCIFunds, co-founding/facilitating R21 and co-founding the Racial Equity through Resilience Community of Practice. During the 100RC period he served in variety of roles in Europe and the Middle East, Latin America, and the Caribbean, as well as the co-creator of the Urban Ocean Program. Stewart led the team that developed the 100RC challenge starting in April 2013, through Context Partners, where he was partner and managing director.

He is a certified associate in the Waterfront Edge Design Guidelines (WEDG) and served as advisory board member for the Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW). Stewart has formal degrees, certification and training in international business, foreign languages, corporate social responsibility, conservation, and environmental science.

Stewart is also the founder of Precovery Labs, where creativity and community drive impact and awareness for clients like RISE- Coastal Resilience Innovations, Ocean Conservancy, Opportunity Finance Network, NDN Fund/Collective, and Conservatoire d’Littoral, among others. Through Precovery Labs, he is also an active professional documentary and fine art photographer, visualizing stories of change and impact.
