Ed leads Indigo's carbon initiative, which is focused on creating a thriving, voluntary market for carbon credits and other environmental service products.

Indigo's market aims to improve grower profitability by compensating them for sequestering large amounts of carbon in their soil, while simultaneously allowing consumers and businesses to offset their carbon footprint through the purchase of high quality, rigorously verified carbon credits. 

Prior to Indigo, Ed worked at Wayfair, where he held two roles: first as the lead for the US Furniture category, then as General Manager of Wayfair Canada, overseeing all aspects of the Canadian business.

Previous to his time at Wayfair, Ed was a Principal with the Boston Consulting Group, concentrating on strategy and operations in the Industrial Goods and Retail spaces. He began his career with 5 years in the nonprofit sector, first with Teach For America, where he taught middle school in Lake Village, Arkansas, and then with the Bridgespan Group, where he worked with nonprofits to scale their impact.

Ed holds an undergraduate degree from Colby College, where he was Phi Beta Kappa, as well as an MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.

"Transformational change requires more than just commitment. We have to align incentives across the entire system. Doing that will require engagement from players within and outside of agriculture. This includes agtech companies, input providers, non-profits, government agencies, consumer packaged goods companies, retailers, and each of us as consumers.
