C2ES Launches Search for President

WASHINGTON – The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions has launched a search for a new president to succeed founder Eileen Claussen, who announced last month she plans to step aside.

The C2ES Board of Directors has formed a Search Committee, chaired by Ann Klee, Vice President of Environment, Health & Safety at GE, with the aim of naming a new president in the first quarter of 2014.

Korn/Ferry International has been retained to manage the search process and has posted specifications for the position. Interested candidates should contact Lorraine Lavet, Korn/Ferry’s sector leader, National Association Specialty Practice, at 703-761-7020 for more information.

Claussen, who plans to devote more time to family while pursuing new endeavors, will continue as president during the search for her successor and plans to remain actively involved with C2ES.
