Esteban Kelly recently joined the New Economics Institute as Director of Development. In addition to co-founding PACA (the Philadelphia Area Co-op Alliance), Esteban has been an important leader and creative force in food justice and co-op movements. He has served on many boards including the Democracy at Work Institute, the US Solidarity Economy Network, and Mariposa Food Co-op where he also worked for over eight years on the co-management team. From 2009-2011, Mr. Kelly was the Vice President of the U.S. Federation of Worker Co-ops and is a previous Board President of NASCO (the North American Students of Cooperation) where he worked as the Director of Education from 2003–2005, and was a board member from 2005–2013. In recognition of “outstanding leadership,” Esteban was inducted into the NASCO Cooperative Hall of Fame in 2011, and was recently appointed to the boards of the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF) and the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA). Due to his impassioned advocacy for food justice, Mr. Kelly was appointed to the Food Policy Advisory Council in the Philadelphia Mayor’s Office of Sustainability.
