Joey Zwillinger

Co-Founder + Co-CEO, Allbirds
Wharton alumni

Joey has long been passionate about making things from renewable resources, which led him to start Allbirds and begin tackling sustainability issues in the footwear industry. Prior to co-founding Allbirds, he spent six years at biotech firm Terravia (formerly Solazyme, Inc.) leading its renewable chemical business, developing and selling high performance algae-based chemicals into various industries such as CPG, personal care, and industrials. Previously, Joey worked in advisory and investment roles at Industry Ventures, Deloitte Consulting and Goldman Sachs. He sits on the Board of education nonprofit Stiles Hall, as well as the Advisory Board of Wharton’s Baker Retail Center. He earned an MBA from Wharton with honors, and a BS in industrial engineering from UC Berkeley.

Joey is now the host of “Purpose Built”, a new special series on SiriusXM, airing monthly on Business Radio SiriusXM channel 132 on Tuesday at noon ET and on Insight SiriusXM channel 121 on Wednesday at 6 pm ET.
