Brianna Kilcullen - Sustainability & Supply Chain Consultant

Brianna is a sustainability & supply chain consultant and the founder of her own consulting practice, which is designed to work one-on-one with companies to inform, shape, and help implement objectives and strategies for the long-term.

Her passion for her work first began from a trip to the textile factories in Central America where she received hands on experience working on the factory floor. She gained the utmost respect for the people who made her clothing and from there went on to draft, create and become Under Armour’s first ever full-time sustainability position based out of Baltimore, MD.

After Under Armour, she went on to manage and direct prAna’s sustainability program, which is a subsidiary of Columbia Sportswear. During her tenure, she integrated a $2 billion sustainability program, created prAna’s first ever Impact Report, expanded the Fair Trade USA program into Vietnam, participated as a key contributor to REI’s Product Sustainability Standards and worked and trained factories all over the world on completing social, environmental and traceability self-assessments.

Prior to the apparel industry, she lived in Uganda post-civil war and traveled and worked on agribusiness initiatives on the northern Ugandan and South Sudanese border. She have also lived in South Africa and studied human rights and race relations.

She is a current fellow in the Outdoor Industry Association’s Skip Yowell Future Leadership Program and holds dual citizenship in the United States and Ireland. She enjoys travel, reading, and being outside.
