Darren leads the SB Corporate Member Network – a peer-to-peer forum for learning and collaboration that helps global brands leverage environmental and social innovation to build new business value, increase brand equity, and lead the way to the next economy.
Darren's passion is finding the sweet spot between financial success and a positive return for our world. Formerly the Director of Environmental Initiatives for Sprint, he now leads the corporate member network for Sustainable Brands. With more than 25 years of combined experience in marketing, strategy, corporate responsibility and developing shared value, he is poised to help SB's members connect with the resources, people and ideas that can make their efforts a success!
Aside from working with his amazingly talented team, Darren can be found seeking some of the best vegetarian and gluten-free food around, eagerly awaiting the latest and greatest movies to hit the big screen, and enjoying some of the liveliest tracks in music today. Biking, books and time in the gym are a plus, as well. Topics that are sure to spur his interest include disruptive innovation, advances in technology, the regenerative economy, social justice, co-creating educational experiences, bioinspiration, purpose-driven business, the maker movement, and striving to live with the heart, soul and mind aligned.
Darren lives in Overland Park, Kansas, with his wife, Angie. They are very proud of their three kids (Josh, Rylie and Ellie) who are pursuing their passions in the automotive field, ballet and empowering others around the world!
