KTL Principal Joe Tell was recently appointed to the Director’s Council of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at University of California (UC) San Diego. Scripps is one of the most important centers for global earth science research and education in the world.
Director’s Council members are leaders in business, government, philanthropy, or the nonprofit sector. The Council meets formally twice per year to review the institution’s progress and to advise the Director in strategic planning for priorities, new directions, and high-level outreach.
Joe brings over 25 years of experience working with industrial, government, and institutional clients in operational and business risk management, process improvement, information management systems, and compliance assurance to his Director’s Council position. His expertise is focused on creating strategies for developing and implementing risk-based management systems that sustain the environment and public health, emphasize strong leadership commitment, and ensure cross-functional stakeholder engagement. Joe is particularly interested in making connections between the private sector, government agencies, and the NGO community to promote collaborative solutions to global environmental and health issues.
Scripps was founded as the Marine Biological Association of San Diego in 1903. The Institution leads research in climate change impacts and adaptation, resilience to hazards, conservation and biodiversity, oceans and human health, national security, and innovative technology to observe the planet.
