Emma Sharer

Director of Operations, Ecotrust Investments

At Ecotrust, I direct operations for our investments team, where we focus on business initiatives including asset management, community development projects, and building entities that align with Ecotrust’s mission. I am bilingual in Spanish and English, with a background in anthropology, agri-tourism, and managing international supply chains for organic consumer packaged goods. I helped operationalize the Redd on Salmon Street food campus, an Ecotrust development located in the heart of Portland and designed to support regional food system growth. I am inspired by building team capacity, creating systems that flow and connecting businesses and people of all backgrounds to thrive in community-powered ecosystems.
