Gail Philbin



Gail Philbin coordinates outreach for a variety of CNT Energy projects that help consumers and communities obtain the information and services they need to control energy costs and become more energy efficient. She has more than two decades of experience in nonprofit communications and administration and a background in journalism. Prior to coming to CNT Energy, she served as communications and marketing director of the Illinois Environmental Council. Philbin also founded Farms without Harm, a grassroots coalition of small farmers, nonprofits and individuals in Michigan, launched in 2005. That project led to the creation of the West Michigan Co-op, an online farmers market she co-founded in 2006 that connects local consumers with local sustainable farms all year-round.
