Sustainability group selects executive director

Posted: February 27, 2013

The Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia, a nonprofit advocacy group for independent, locally-owned businesses that value social and environmental impact as well as profit, has concluded its search for a new executive director, hiring Jamie Gauthier.

Most recently, Gauthier was program officer at the Philadelphia arm of Local Initiatives Support Corp., a national nonprofit development agency, where she has worked for the past eight years. The West Philadelphia resident has also founded several community-based organizations and, according to her LinkedIn profile, was a sales and use tax accountant with DuPont Co.

A graduate of Temple University and the University of Pennsylvania, Gauthier will start work at SBN on March 13, succeeding Leanne Krueger-Braneky, who was the group's only executive director since its founding in 2001, serving in that role since 2004.

Braneky left SBN at the end of January to join the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, or BALLE, as director of fellowship and alumni.
