J.R. Simplot Company
Brandy Wilson is the Sustainability Director for the J.R. Simplot Company, a vertically integrated, global agribusiness firm. She works with Simplot’s customers and business groups, as well as industry stakeholders and NGOs, to develop and implement a company-wide, leading sustainability program. Since Simplot does everything from phosphate mining and fertilizer manufacturing, to crop advising services, to farming, ranching, and food processing (Simplot is best known for its delicious French fries), she works with partners across the entire agricultural supply chain, from growers through customers, to define and measure sustainability outcomes.
Prior to joining Simplot, Brandy enjoyed a 20-year career at CH2M (now Jacobs Engineering), serving as their Global Sustainability Director. She split her time between developing and implementing CH2M’s award-winning sustainability platform, and helping her clients develop sustainability strategies and programs that delivered positive outcomes and business value. She led CH2M’s collaboration with The Nature Conservancy to advance green infrastructure solutions that protect communities and assets while enhancing natural resources. Outside of work, you can find Brandy (literally) outside: hiking, camping, cross-country skiing, and of course, gardening.
