First Mode Co-founder Chris Voorhees sat down with Russell Reynolds Associates Leadership Advisor Nanaz Mohtashami and Board and CEO Advisor Clarke Murphy on their Redefiners Podcast to explore how his career as an engineer led him first to the far reaches of space with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and now to tackling sustainability issues here on Earth with First Mode.

“We don’t look at a mine site any differently than we look at a space craft,” said Chris Voorhees. “It’s a system. It’s a system of systems trying to do a specific thing.”

The Redefiners Podcast features daring leaders from across industries and the world and gets their insights and perspectives on how they’re creating impact and making change.
