Erin Billman



Erin believes that sustainability is an incredible business opportunity, and that doing the right thing and making money go hand in hand. Erin brings nearly ten years of business and strategy consulting experience to help her clients create, communicate, and execute on strategic initiatives.  At Blu Skye, Erin has partnered with an aluminum company on strategies to drive higher packaging recycling rates, the US battery industry on voluntary product stewardship, and Walmart on sustainable agriculture, merchandising and the sustainability index strategies.

Prior to joining Blu Skye, Erin was a Case Team Leader at Bain & Company, where she worked with industry leaders from retail, technology, healthcare, and gas & electric utilities. She has experience applying a suite of tools including growth strategy, performance improvement, organizational design, due diligence, and operations / project planning, to address companies’ most critical issues and opportunities.

Erin’s work in sustainability began as an undergraduate intern, with activities ranging from rehabilitating orphaned hawks, to waist-deep mucking for pond turtles, to radio-tracking coyotes. During business school, she conducted a market study for an Amazonian NGO, applying a business approach to achieving sustainability for its indigenous people.

Erin has a BS in Biology from Boston College where she graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. She received her MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in Sustainable Business and the Environment. In her spare time, Erin enjoys exploring the Bay Area with her young daughter. They can often be found hiking the local trails, noshing at the farmers market and picnicking in the park.
