In addition, Stowe is joining the SCS Executive Team, which provides strategic oversight for the company’s broader environmental and sustainability auditing, certification and consulting services.

Before joining SCS, Stowe was a field biology educator, working in a number of diverse environments, including the Coastal Southeast, Rocky Mountains, and Pacific Northwest. Stowe holds a BS in Biology, and in 2014 earned his MBA degree in Sustainability from Presidio Graduate School.
