A matchmaker at heart, Kellen loves connecting people from across the sustainability spectrum who might not otherwise meet. He’s spent his professional career driving collaboration at the corporate-NGO nexus, and has deep experience leading engagement and sustainability initiatives for businesses across sectors.
Kellen prides himself on being an “expert generalist,” and knows the ropes – and the influencers – on everything from water stewardship to the circular economy, materiality to conflict resolution. His favorite thing about working for Future 500 is the entrepreneurial environment, where bold ideas are welcomed and the team is constantly evolving to the needs of society and stakeholders.
Kellen holds a master's degree from the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a BA in Human Biology from Stanford University. When he's not in the office, you’ll find him exploring local parks with his wife and daughter, and slowly renovating the old farmhouse that they own in Portland, Oregon.
