The speaker for this event will be Colin G. Tetreault who holds an MA from ASU’s School of Sustainability and BS in Marketing from the W.P. Carey School of Business at the same school. Colin currently holds the position of Chair of the Environmental Quality and Sustainability Commission at the City of Phoenix.

He has also held active positions as Senior Policy Advisor of Sustainability to the Mayor’s office in Phoenix and has been involved with various other activities, such as Founding Director of Carbon Roots International, Treasurer of the Phoenix Parks Foundation, Advisor to the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers and the AZ Institute for Digital Progress. These assignments have allowed Colin to be instrumental in advancing Phoenix’s future and encouraged his support for education at all levels. An avid hiker and triathlete, Colin lives with his family in Phoenix and is recognized as one of the 40 under 40 by the Phoenix Business Journal.

He is principal of S2 Consulting, an innovation driven sustainability and management consulting firm. As a proponent of education at all levels, his international involvement, academic accomplishments and forward-looking focus make him an appropriate speaker on our topic.
