Orla Shields

Founder & CEO, Kamma

Orla Shields is CEO and co-founder of Kamma, a world-leading geospatial technology company. Orla started her career with the banking division of EY and went on to work on the recapitalisation of the banking sector with the Irish Central Bank during the credit crisis, one caused in large part by a lack of clear and accurate data on property value.
She later managed the £650m infrastructure budget for the London 2012 Olympics and has worked as a Commercial Director for a number of top-tier digital agencies and media companies. She returned to the issue of delivering clear and accurate property data in 2016, she co-founded Kamma. Today, Kamma provides market-leading risk solutions to the financial and property sectors, deploying data to solve the biggest threat humanity has ever faced: climate change.
