John Replogle, President & CEO
John Replogle (rep-luh-gul) joined Seventh Generation in March of 2011. He comes to us from Burt’s Bees, the leading Earth-friendly, natural personal care products company, where he served starting in January 2006 as President and Chief Executive Officer. Prior to Burt’s Bees, John spent three years at Unilever, where he managed the skin care division and helped to launch the Real Beauty campaign for Dove and establish the Dove Self-Esteem Fund.
John’s commitment to conscious consumerism and the triple bottom line factored heavily into his decision to join the Seventh Generation team.
“Business is one of the most powerful instruments for meaningful change on our planet. I believe we’ve only just begun to explore the possibilities inherent in our products, our mission, and ourselves. It will be a privilege to build on Seventh Generation’s 23-year legacy and commitment to the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy: In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”
An avid outdoorsman, John will be right at home among the lakes, hills, and hiking trails of the Green Mountain State. In fact, his new role at Seventh Generation marks a return to his New England roots where he was raised and educated—first at Dartmouth College, where he earned a B.A. in History, and later, as an MBA student and graduate of Harvard Business School.
A father of four, John and his wife Kristin count Seventh Generation liquid laundry detergent among their favorite products.
