SAN FRANCISCO, May 30, 2018 - Sustainable Brands® recently announced that Darren Beck has been promoted to Vice President of the SB Corporate Member Network. Beck joined the company’s leadership team as Senior Director of Corporate Membership 18 months ago to further develop and enhance the growing SB Corporate Member Network. He brought a wealth of experience in sustainability, CSR and social impact, having spent 15 years with Sprint, including as Director of Environmental Initiatives. Since that time, he and his team have maintained a member retention rate of more than 80 percent and are on track to grow the network nearly 50 percent in 2018.
The Sustainable Brands Corporate Member Network is the leading peer-to-peer, learning and networking group designed to help global and emerging brands across market sectors effectively leverage environmental and social innovation. Corporate Members include 3M, BASF, CVS, Cisco, Danone, Disney, Interface, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, REI, S’well, Target, UPS, and many others.
“Sustainable Brands brings outstanding value to companies that are seeking a better future for their business and the world,” states Beck. “It has been a delight to move from being a former member who experienced that value first-hand to now leading this line of business for SB. My team and I look forward to continuing work with our advisory council and members. Together, we’re building this network into a powerhouse of collaboration – one that’s creating a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable economy.”
“In his reasonably short tenure with our organization, Darren has become an indispensable member of our leadership team,” states KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, founder and CEO of Sustainable Brands. “I look forward to supporting his efforts to design and deliver even more value to both Sustainable Brands and our corporate members by accelerating the learning and collaboration that is already taking place within this important and growing network.”
