Betsy is Director of Growth and Strategic Initiatives for Anthesis North America. Her work focuses on identifying new growth areas and building out service offerings in areas including social impact, regenerative agriculture, and nature-based solutions to accelerate the transformative power of Anthesis’ Activator approach to better equip companies in delivering sustainable performance in this decisive decade.

With nearly twenty years of leadership in sustainability strategy, stakeholder engagement, and strategic communications, Betsy brings a diverse skill set and experience from both the non-profit and private sectors to the Anthesis Group. She has honed her expertise across a diverse range of sustainability disciplines—from climate and energy, water stewardship and sustainable seafood to responsible forestry and regenerative agriculture—during her tenures at the World Wildlife Fund and Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture.

Dedicating the past decade of her career to advising executives and investors on effective and meaningful sustainability strategies to harness purchasing power and investment capital into a force for good, Betsy has partnered with leading companies across the agriculture, apparel, beverage, finance, food, forest products, restaurant, and retail sectors. Throughout her leadership of Field to Market, the largest multi-stakeholder initiative dedicated to advancing sustainable agriculture, Betsy united diverse organizations and competitors such as PepsiCo, The Coca-Cola Company, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Target, and Walmart behind a shared vision and pre-competitive approach to building a future in which farmers, business, and nature thrive.
