NABCEP Names New Executive Director

 

Malta, NY, June 5, 2009 – NABCEP

The Board of Directors of the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) is pleased to announce that Ezra Auerbach has been appointed as the organization’s Executive Director. At the same time, the Board wishes to express its sincere thanks to Think Energy, Inc., which has provided management services to NABCEP for the past year.

 

Acting Chair of NABCEP’s Board of Directors Jane Weissman, said; “We hired Think Energy at a time when NABCEP needed focused assistance in organization and management, and now that the organization is on sound footing, it is the right time to transition our management from an external company to a full-time Executive Director.”

 

Mr. Auerbach, whose involvement in the renewable energy industry spans many years, has served as the Chair of NABCEP’s Board of Directors for five years. He resigned his position as Chair to assume his new duties as Executive Director. “I’m thrilled at the chance to advance my volunteer, part-time passion for NABCEP’s mission to a full-time occupation,” said Mr. Auerbach. “I know the magnitude of this job and am well aware that I have big shoes to fill. The fact that we can once again contemplate in-house management of NABCEP speaks volumes about the quality of work that Rebecca Eaton and her team from Think Energy have done.” 

 

NABCEP will be consolidating operations and personnel in its Malta, N.Y. office. Mr. Auerbach stated that, “NABCEP is going to build a strong team here in the Albany area, and to that end one of my first priorities is to build a talented and diverse staff.” He requests that interested parties visit NABCEP’s website — http://www.nabcep.org— and visit the “news” section to view upcoming job openings.
