As Shaun McGrath, former executive director of the American Solar Energy Society (ASES), stepped down to pursue an opportunity in the public policy sector the organization announced that Susan Greene has accepted the position of president for ASES. Greene joins ASES after recently serving as senior vice president at The Cable Center.

“Susan Greene brings to ASES a strong track record in building growing enterprises, and especially in managing the critical interface of public policy, regulation and competitive business practice,” said ASES Board Chair Jeff Lyng. “As a media-savvy executive, she is the ideal person to guide ASES as it grows into a more powerfully effective voice for renewable energy.”

Greene has held executive leadership positions in several organizations including NBC, HBO, Citigroup, Time Warner Cable and was president of Women in Sustainable Energy. In her early career, Greene was an attorney at the Federal Communications Commission.

“I am delighted to join the ASES team,” Greene said. “The coming together of public policy, consumer interest and new and more cost-effective technologies in the renewable energy sector provides a unique opportunity for ASES to play a central role in the creation of the new energy landscape.”
