JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The North Florida Green Chamber of Commerce (NFGCC) has announced that Jessica Tittl will serve as the new executive director for the four-year old organization.
“We are happy to welcome Jessica Tittl as our executive director,” said Dolly Penland, chair of the North Florida Green Chamber. “Her impressive professional and educational background, along with her knowledge and passion for sustainability in the corporate environment make her an excellent addition to our team.”
The Green Chamber is a regional organization for all sizes of businesses in Northeast Florida whose mission is to promote the region’s economy by helping businesses thrive with a focus on people, planet, and prosperity for generations to come.
Tittl’s energy and focus are on helping forward-thinking businesses that want to do the right thing and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
“As executive director, I will provide high quality speakers and education and a multitude of networking opportunities for our members, so they have the tools and connections they need to make the best possible decisions regarding sustainability and their business model,” she said. “With the right tools, knowledge, and inspiration our members can make an enormous impact.”
Tittl resides in Keystone Heights, Fla. with her husband Tom. Tittl has made Florida her home and she is enthusiastic about promoting sustainable business throughout the state. She has dedicated her career to showing that sustainable business is good business and is excited to connect with a business community that shares that vision.
Tittl’s background is in new technology development. After settling in North Florida, Tittl launched Biome Future, a nature-inspired technology company. She is also a PhD student at the University of Florida, where she studies coral reef microbiomes and the role of business in driving conservation efforts and policy.
Tittl fully believes that business can be a force for good and she is excited to help companies and brands unleash that force.
“Being sustainable is not charity; it’s better business, and the point is for us to move the needle on ‘best practices’ further from just a project for extra credit and closer to universal compliance while improving the bottom line for our members,” noted Tittl. “Florida’s economy depends on a healthy and thriving environment, and as industry partners we can work together to strengthen our state and economy through good business practices that consider people, planet, and profits.”
