Based in the northeastern United States, Gabe serves as Preferred by Nature’s global resource for policies, systems, quality monitoring and training for the forest management services implemented across Preferred by Nature regions and partner organisations.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my work with Preferred by Nature is being able to witness first-hand the positive impacts that FSC certification can have for workers, local communities and the environment.
Gabe provides technical and quality oversight for Preferred by Nature’s Forest Management services. It includes the maintenance of related Preferred by Nature held accreditations, audit management, auditing, and monitoring of Preferred by Nature’s global Forest Management portfolio to ensure consistent implementation of policies and procedures, and a timely follow through on stakeholder comments and complaints.
He also provides technical support to regional FM staff and auditors, conducts FM audits, delivers FSC FM auditor training and serves as the point of contact for accreditation enquiries related to FM services.
