Chief Strategy Officer:

The chief strategy officer (CSO) is a senior level management position based in, but not limited to, any of ECC’s local sites/markets[1] but with responsibilities overseeing and developing high road initiatives across the country.  The CSO reports directly to the President/CEO but works within a collegial, non-hierarchical organizational environment.

This new position directs a diverse portfolio. The core responsibility, however, involves identifying and implementing strategies to take ECC’s high road mission to scale through expanding existing programs and establishing new ones.   Success entails effectively transitioning the organization from its start-up phase into its highly dynamic and exciting new growth phase. 

The CSO works with multiple stakeholders to accelerate the broad adoption of equity and inclusion in sustainability policies and programs.  The goal is to promote a values-based (high road) approach to clean infrastructure investments that involve and benefit communities most impacted by a legacy of environmental racism and economic and social inequities.

The breadth of responsibilities include accelerating model high road climate policies and programs through capacity building, technical assistance and strategy development that facilitate:  1) multi-stakeholder engagement in planning and implementation,  2) union and livable wage jobs; 3)  diversity and inclusion in jobs and business opportunities;  4) public and private sector procurement strategies to scale the impact on community health, wealth and climate resilience in low-income communities.
