St. Paul, MN – The Global Corporate Consultancy of Antea®Group is pleased to welcome Michael Maggio as Partner. Mike is a sustainability strategist and thought‐leader in consumer products, with over 20 years of extensive leadership experience in packaging, engineering, sustainability and project management. A frequent speaker on sustainability and the impact of our decisions on the world, Mike has developed and written extensively on the concept called Positive Potential™, a strategy to balance waste generation with measurable positive sustainability initiatives.
Before joining the GCC, Mike brought visionary leadership to the consumer products industry, serving most recently as the Vice President of Global Engineering at Johnson & Johnson, one of the world’s largest and most diverse medical devices and diagnostics, consumer healthcare, biologics and pharmaceuticals company.
His efforts at Johnson & Johnson embodied their credo: “We must maintain in good order the property we are privileged to use, protecting the environment and natural resources.” Mike focused on “engineering the future” for the Johnson & Johnson family of consumer companies by integrating creativity, technology, and business – most readily seen in the highly successful Project Phoenix initiative, working with the waste pickers in Brazil. As the founder and driving force behind this initiative, Mike helped transform the company’s impact in emerging markets through a unique supply chain sustainability effort that encourages economy, recycling and self‐sufficient, responsible growth. He plans to bring that same vision and innovative thinking to GCC’s global clients.
Previously, Mike served in senior leadership roles within the engineering functions of The Estée Lauder Companies, Inc., Avon Products, Inc., and L'Oréal Paris. He received his Bachelor of Science, Packaging from the Rochester Institute of Technology, his Master of Science, Environmental Science and Chemistry from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and his Master of Business Administration from the Cornell University S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management. He is based in New Jersey and is fluent in English and Portuguese.
