Managing Partner, New York
Virtually my entire career spanning 30+ years has been spent as a passionate global champion of sustainability across several industries including specialty chemicals, coatings, building materials, lighting, energy, and IoT. I've spent my life managing Fortune 500 businesses and creating my own endeavors from inception, and yet I'm dissatisfied with the impact my life has made on humanity despite my achievements.
Even though I was the CEO of Noveda, the Chairman and CEO of Lighting Science Group Corporation, a Partner in Pegasus Sustainable Century Merchant Bank, Vice President and General Manager of the Philips Solid State Lighting NA, and spent over a decade with specialty chemicals leader Rohm and Haas in various leadership roles, it's simply not enough for me to leave my mark on this planet.
I am driven by the betterment of humanity and putting an end to oppressed communities that lack the fundamental building blocks of education, keep women in the shadows, and misuse materials and resources...that is why CAЯBON will be my best and brightest work of my life.
