Senior Vice President – National Accounts

I have a time-proven record of managing large multi-market electricity and natural gas accounts.

2007 As Senior Vice President and Principal Consultant at Acclaim Energy, every day is focused on managing the complex needs of large multi-national accounts. Our commercial and industrial customers are sophisticated consumers and have rapidly evolving energy needs and financial objectives, which I accommodate with electricity and natural gas procurement, commodity price risk management, market intelligence and regulatory oversight. In addition to my experience in design engineering, production engineering, product management and energy risk management, I’m also a Certified Energy Purchasing Manager.

2003 Joining GDF SUEZ as Sales Manager positioned me with one of the top commercial electricity providers in the nation. There, I furthered my skills in energy marketing, product structuring and energy risk management.

2000 My energy market career began at Enron where I was Market Manager for the New York and New Jersey markets and then opened the Texas market. Creating the energy products and structures for large commercial and  industrial end users and working for a global company that reached No. 7 on the Fortune 500 list provided invaluable experience.

1989 After graduating from University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering, I was an engineer at BASF Corporation. Working at the world’s leading chemical company gave me early-career insight into utilizing science and innovation to meet customers’ current and future needs.
