Ellen Weinreb founded Weinreb Group Sustainability and ESG Recruiting in 2005 out of the need for subject matter expertise in the hiring specialized talent. Ellen’s work and interest in sustainability dates back well before sustainability was a buzzword. After receiving her MBA from Yale in 1998, she launched a niche sustainability consulting firm, working with clients including Levi Strauss, Nike, Clorox, and Hewlett Packard. Today, Ellen and her team place talent globally for companies.
Ellen Weinreb has 20 years of experience working in CSR and sustainability, with deep expertise helping leading global companies find the best professionals to fill corporate responsibility roles in nearly every business function. Tapping into her vast global network of experienced sustainability leaders and rising stars, she works one on one with clients from the recruitment stage to placement and beyond to ensure the best fit. She is a headhunter by day and a GreenBiz contributor by night. Her column in GreenBiz, Talent Show (http://www.greenbiz.com/engage/featured-blogs/talent-show) identifies opportunities for the human resources department to move the sustainability dial forward for their company.
