About the Speakers

In 2008, Ms. Drumheller co-founded Alaska Airlines' corporate sustainabilityprogram. She raised awareness of the importance and value of environmental stewardship through the launch and leadership of a cross-divisional Green Team, which lead to a company-wide adoption of new "greener" business initiatives and strategies. In 2009, she completed Alaska Airgroup's first Corporate Environmental Responsibility Report. By institutionalizing sustainability and integrating environmental decisions into routine business decisions, Ms. Drumheller believes that businesses can improve their brand value and corporate image, increase employee engagement, cut costs, and reduce risks.

Ms. Drumheller is an enthusiastic public speaker who enjoys turning dry technical information into something simple, fun, and understandable.

Derek Eisel founded and leads the environmental program for Expeditors International of Washington, Inc., a six billion dollar global logistics company headquartered in Seattle. Expeditors' completes an annual company-wide greenhouse gas footprint with the help of 180 office green teams around the globe. Expeditors works with customers to measure their transportation greenhouse gas footprint and recommend logistics solutions to optimize their supply chain to reduce their footprint and save money. Derek also has 10+ years of software development experience and supports Expeditors' technology vision in the Research and Development team. In his spare time Derek enjoys planting big native trees, playing the guitar and practicing acrobatic yoga.
