South Pole is thrilled to announce the appointment of Jonathan Reese as Business Development Director for North America. Based in San Francisco, Jonathan is a 20+ year veteran sustainability professional focusing on business development, product development, and brand building.
Most recently, he spent over 8 years as the Director of Business Development at Sustainable Brands - the premier global community of brand innovators in social and environmental responsibility. At Sustainable Brands, Jonathan led the creation, positioning, sales and management of integrated global engagement programs.
At South Pole, Jonathan will work with the North American sales team to position the company for success, develop its client base, and work closely with South Pole's global operations.

I felt it was time to focus my work on a leading climate solutions provider and I've followed South Pole for years. South Pole was (and still is) SB's exclusive partner providing carbon offsets and renewable energy credits to help ensure events are carbon neutral and achieve ISO 20121 certification. South Pole is an incredible company, and I'm proud to be taking on this key role."
