Cabot Creamery Cooperative, Director of Sustainability
Jed has been involved in dairy agriculture and cooperatives his whole life. Raised on a seven-generation family dairy farm in Central Massachusetts, he has spent the past 18 years working in a number of positions for Cabot Creamery in Vermont. In late 2007, Cabot began to explicitly address issues of sustainability and, in April 2008, created a full-time position to help establish a framework for sustainability management at the 90-year-old dairy cooperative.
Jed’s experience as a Fellow provides valuable perspective on approaches to both vision and successful communication with internal Cabot audiences and with external stakeholder engagement, as well as the opportunity to apply systems dynamics thinking to specific sustainability efforts.
