Vice President of Business Sustainability & Community, Mountain Equipment Co-op, Canada

Esther leads MEC's sustainable business strategy to create business value and maximize MEC's impact in doing less harm and more good, internally and externally. She is a strategist, enabler, and integrator of change and innovation. Specifically, she is accountable for overarching policy and strategy, internal and external outreach regarding key business sustainability issues, MEC's multi-million dollar outdoor community investment program, internal implementation support across operations and supply chain, and accountability and reporting. Esther brings over ten years of experience to MEC and the outdoor industry. She's active in her community, participating in various issues locally and beyond. She is also active outdoors, and loves the sports MEC supports - from trail running to snowboarding to road riding. Originally from Switzerland and Ontario, she moved to Vancouver 12 years ago and has been enjoying the west coast since.

Building bridges between what is and what could be defines her interest and experience.
