Prince Harry’s new boss says the former working royal is known around the office simply as “Harry.”
Alexi Robichaux, chief executive of US professional coaching and mental health business BetterUp, has shared fresh details about the Duke of Sussex’s appointment as the start-up’s chief impact officer.’
He told BBC News the prince has been “in the role for a couple of months,” but declined to reveal his salary or how many hours he works.
‘He’s got an incredible attitude and he is filled with energy and enthusiasm,” Robichaux claimed.
“He’s focusing on a few areas… helping to change the dialogue around mental health to focus on strength building and mental fitness.
Robichaux said the duke “likes to be called Harry in the workplace, so we just address him as Harry”.
BetterUp was founded in 2013 and provides mobile-based professional coaching, counselling and mentorship.
Harry announced his new gig in a statement earlier this week, saying that his goal is to “lift up critical dialogues around mental health, build supportive and compassionate communities, and foster an environment for honest and vulnerable conversations”.
The new job is one of a number of new roles Harry and wife Meghan Markle have secured as part of their bid to become financially independent since quitting the royal family last year.
They have also signed multi-million dollar deals with streaming giants Netflix and Spotify.
