Stephanie Kersten-Johnston

Lecturer

Originally from the UK, Stephanie Kersten-Johnston forged a 10-year career in the corporate world in London, working for and advising companies such as Tesco, BASF, Roche and Intercontinental Hotels Group. Her experience covers a wide range of sectors and stakeholder groups but her special interest is in corporate sustainability, where she has worked with a number of global organizations on their sustainability strategies and communications processes.

Since moving to the US with her husband in 2015, Kersten-Johnson has been focusing her efforts more specifically on the topic of Circular Economy and interpreting complex sustainability challenges through this lens in particular.

Until recently, Kersten-Johnson was Director of Sustainable Business at HEINEKEN USA, where she supported the company’s implementation of the global “Brewing a Better World” framework for the brewer’s US operations. In March of this year she joined the team at The Recycling Partnership as Director of Innovation.
