Iron Ox has hired former Impossible Foods executive Rebekah Moses as Vice President of Impact Strategy. Moses joined the company this week after five years as Head of Impact Strategy for Impossible Foods, where she helped make an environmental and social impact an essential part of corporate strategy.
Prior to joining Impossible Foods, Moses supported public sector agricultural development and agricultural research at the University of California at Berkeley, Stanford University, and California Polytechnic State University’s coastal ecosystem ranch. She has worked at the intersection of ecology, agriculture, and international development in the Middle East and domestically.
“Iron Ox is transforming the traditional agriculture sector into a center of innovation, and Rebekah’s experience in food tech, agriculture and sustainability is a perfect fit and key strategic asset,” said Iron Ox CEO and Founder Brandon Alexander. “Her insight and passion for the planet will strengthen our mission of making the food system scalable, secure and sustainable.”
“We can make monumental shifts in how we build food systems to address climate change — and indoor farming will play a big role,” said Moses, who joins Iron Ox’s leadership team and reports directly to the CEO. “The agriculture industry urgently needs to help mitigate and adapt to climate change, water scarcity and topsoil depletion. Iron Ox’s innovative approach to farming provides immediate efficiency improvements, and long-term paths to a resilient, diversified and sustainable food system.”
