Joan Stockinger is an employee of Cooperative Development Service (CDS) and works with the CDS Consulting Co-op’s Expansion and Growth Team doing financial analysis and proformas for food co-ops.

She has been involved with cooperatives as a worker-owner, consumer member, board member and consultant for many years. At CDS she does business and co-op development projects with all kinds of co-ops, including organic and sustainable producers and producer groups. Joan also has a Master’s of Business Administration from the Yale School of Management and spent six years at Fortune 500 company as a project and market manager. She was also part of a two-person startup team that launched a social venture company in Winnipeg, Manitoba. During her eight year tenure as chief financial officer and market director, the fund raised over $60 million for local investment.

Joan has used her expertise helping organizations pool their intelligence to be successful. She finds being part of a co-op team to be a powerful motivator. “A lot of expertise can be shared, especially in the planning process. It dramatically increases a co-op’s chances of being successful.”
