April 5, 2016, NEW YORK / PR Newswire / — The New York City Energy Efficiency Corporation (NYCEEC), a leading provider of clean energy financing solutions, announced the addition of Sadie McKeown, the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President at the Community Preservation Corporation (CPC), to NYCEEC’s Board of Directors. Ms. McKeown brings deep lending expertise, wide-ranging management experience and energy-related finance leadership to help further NYCEEC’s success.
At CPC, Ms. McKeown oversees all of the lending activities, business operations and investor relations for the affordable housing and community revitalization finance company, and was instrumental in its 2011 restructuring and subsequent success. She was also responsible for the development of CPC’s Green Financing Initiative that combined public incentives with private dollars to finance energy efficiency retrofits.
“Sadie McKeown will be an insightful, passionate, experienced voice on the NYCEEC board,” said Jeff Brodsky, NYCEEC’s board chair and Vice Chairman of Related Companies. “I look forward to working with her to bring clean energy financing to New Yorkers and New York City businesses.”
At NYCEEC, Ms. McKeown is joining a diverse, multi-talented board that includes real estate experts, clean energy investors, policymakers and environmental advocates. Together they will help guide the growth and impact of an organization which, since 2011, has financed over $80 million dollars in clean energy projects across 5.2 million square feet of NYC properties—eliminating over 570,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases.
“The savings associated with energy conservation measures can play a key role in the preservation and affordability of the housing stock in our communities. Unfortunately there are often barriers that restrict access to the capital necessary to put those measures in place,” said Ms. McKeown. “It’s an honor to work with an organization like NYCEEC that is dedicated to breaking down those barriers and making New York a greener and more sustainable city.”
