Director of Membership
Jon Cocina joined the 1% for the Planet team in the fall of 2012, focusing on building relationships between member businesses and nonprofit partners. More recently, Jon became the organization’s Director of Membership. In this role, Jon oversees the global Membership team and works to engage new businesses in joining the 1% for the Planet movement.
Prior to joining 1% for the Planet, Jon completed a Bachelor of Science in English and holds an MBA with a focus in sustainable management. After considering a career in education, Jon decided to pursue his passion for the outdoors by working in the outdoor retail industry. Inspired by brands like Patagonia, Jon eventually wanted to pursue a more mission driven career and was thrilled to join 1% for the Planet at its VT headquarters.
Jon grew up outside of Buffalo, NY. Although he misses many aspects of Western New York, Vermont affords him the opportunity to explore some of the Northeast’s most scenic and wild areas. Outside of work, Jon enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife, daughter, and dog.
