Chief Executive Officer
For two decades, Terry has worked and studied at the intersection of business and the environment. His focus areas have included mining issues at the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, renewable energy and marketing at Green Mountain Energy and sustainable business practices at the Timberland Company. Through work with both for profit and nonprofit organizations, Terry has gained a deep appreciation for the role that each can play in affecting positive change.
In 2000, Terry became the first staff person at Timberland dedicated to minimizing the company’s environmental footprint and supporting new markets for sustainable products. As Director of Environmental Stewardship, Terry reduced the company’s carbon footprint by more than 15%, adopted widespread use of water-based adhesives, and launched programs in green building and organic cotton. In 2005, Terry joined 1% for the Planet, and has since grown membership from 92 to more than 1200 companies. Terry has a BA in Economics from Middlebury College and a MBA and a Master of Environmental Management from Yale University. In the winter, Terry loves to ski in the backcountry. Year-round he’s addicted to all kinds of sports that mix endurance and adrenaline.
