Hersh currently serves as chief data officer at climate technology firm Arcadia. She succeeds Christina Martin, who served on Green Seal’s board for eight years. Martin has been elected chair emeritus and will continue to serve as an advisor to Green Seal.

“Christina’s unique combination of expertise in sustainability, business, communications, and policy was a critical asset to Green Seal,” said Doug Gatlin, Green Seal CEO. “From leading Green Seal’s first all-female slate of officers and increasing diversity on Green Seal’s board, to her staunch support of our important mission, she has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the organization’s success, and I am grateful for her leadership.”

Green Seal also elected three new members to its board of directors: Ed Chen, federal communications director for the Natural Resources Defense Council; Ben Gruitt, carbon solutions manager for RE Tech Advisors; and Vaishali Sampat, director of sustainability and corporate social responsibility for Kilroy Realty.

“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Ed, Ben, and Vaishali to Green Seal’s board of directors. We are incredibly fortunate to have such a talented and accomplished group of sustainability professionals join our leadership team,” said Gatlin.
