Atlanta McIlwraith

Inside Timberland: I am the senior manager of community engagement, which means I manage Timberland’s global community service and community investment programs.

Outside Timberland: I enjoy knowing our electricity meter runs backwards in the summer, thanks to the solar panels on the roof of our home.

My favorite thing to do in the outdoors: I enjoy taking my 14 month old daughter to the beach and going for a bike ride with her in a seat on my handlebars.

My favorite Timberland product: I am a HUGE SmartWool fan. Does that count? I bought a pair of Timberland boots in 2005 when I first joined the company, and they are the most comfortable piece of footwear I own. I don’t remember the name of them, but five years on they’re still going strong (although I need to get them re-heeled).

Atlanta McIlwraith is employed by Timberland.

Strengthening Relationships Through Service

As a values-driven company, Timberland is always looking for ways to walk the walk as we talk the talk. It’s not always easy.

The Evolution of Earth Day

It used to be that most Timberland employees worldwide celebrated Earth Day on or as close to April 22 as possible. I would wake up in New Hampshire and pull on my boots, jeans and service T-shirt, knowing that my colleagues in Asia were kicking their feet up after a hard day of service, that [...]
