Nathalie Gabbay
RGC Coffee Inc.

Nathalie began her career in the coffee industry in 2003 when she joined RGC Coffee Inc., a green coffee importer based in Montreal, Canada. She is responsible for growing RGC Coffee's specialty coffee business in the U.S. and Canada, which includes all premium, traceable, certified and direct relationship coffees.

A love of green coffee cupping eventually brought her to the SCAA, where she began volunteering her time in 2005. Nathalie has served on the Sustainability Committee since then and has also chaired the Sustainability Award Subcommittee, which is responsible for selecting and promoting the SCAA's Sustainability Award recipient each year. Nathalie is also an active member of the Coffee Association of Canada and has worked to bring together specialty coffee companies on both sides of the border.

Prior to joining the coffee industry, Nathalie worked in the Real Estate Investment Banking division of Lehman Brothers in New York. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with degrees in International Relations and Economics.

Nathalie now resides in Los Angeles, California with her husband and newborn son.
