This Year’s Speaker: Mark Tercek
Mark Tercek is president and CEO of The Nature Conservancy, the world's largest conservation organization. He co-authored the Washington Post and Publisher's Weekly bestselling book Nature's Fortune: How Business and Society Thrive by Investing in Nature.

Before joining The Nature Conservancy in 2008, Mark was a Partner and Managing Director of Goldman Sachs where he worked for 24 years. Starting in 2005, he led the firm's environmental strategy and its Environmental Markets Group. Inspired by the opportunity to help businesses, governments and environmental organizations work together in new, innovative ways, Mark left Goldman Sachs in 2008 to head up The Nature Conservancy. He is a champion of the idea of natural capital - valuing nature for its own sake as well as for the services it provides for people, such as clean air and water, productive soils and a stable climate.
