Atlanta | May 10, 2016

The Nature Conservancy has selected Soumya Hombaiah to serve as the organization’s director of finance and operations in Georgia. The Nature Conservancy is a global leader in conservation and has worked in Georgia since the 1960s.

“I grew up in India and learned about the natural world from my grandfather, and I once championed a campaign to save a beloved tree on my school campus,” Hombaiah said. “We have so much to save, and I am pleased to be a part of the Conservancy’s work here in Georgia and beyond.” 

“Souyma has extensive experience in planning and operations management and is skilled in improving organizational performance,” said Deron Davis, executive director of The Nature Conservancy in Georgia. “Beyond her professional qualifications, her passion for nature is clear.” 

Before joining the Conservancy, Hombaiah spent nine years working in finance and operations for the global affairs team of the American Cancer Society, as a manager and director. She also served as a financial analyst for Georgia State University and a controller for a private consulting firm. She holds a master of business administration in finance from Georgia State University and a master of science in medical biochemistry from Manipal University in India. Hobaiah is fluent in two Indian languages, Hindi and Kannada. She lives in Johns Creek with her husband, Kiran Hombaiah, lead data architect at Cricket Wireless and their two young sons.
