Groundswell Hires Former White House Official Michelle Moore as CEO

Nonprofit focused on expanding economic opportunity brings on new leader

is a nonprofit devoted to a concept it calls “civic consumption,” the idea that consumers can pool their purchasing power for the betterment of society. In particular, it has applied this idea to the energy economy by helping consumers choose renewable energy options.

The nonprofit announced this week that it has hired Michelle Moore as its new CEO. Moore has served on Groundswell’s Advisory Council since 2011 and has worked in the a variety of public and private sector positions focused on sustainability and economic development.

From 2009 to early 2012, she served in the White House as a senior advisor at the Office of Management and Budget, as well as the federal environmental executive on the Council for Environmental Quality, which coordinates federal environmental efforts. During her tenure, she helped implement environmental efforts, such as the Better Buildings Initiative, an effort to incentivize the private sector to upgrade commercial and industrial buildings to make them more energy efficient.

After her stint at the White House, she worked for Delos, a project of the Clinton Foundation. As a strategic advisor focused on marketing the WELL Building Standard, a building standard designed to improve human health and wellness.

“Michelle’s leadership as one of the architects of the green building movement changed the conversation about how to make sustainability a fundamental of the largest asset class on Earth,” said Stockton Williams, chair of Groundswell’s board of directors, in the organization’s in-house magazine. “Her expertise in our space is an incredible asset as we move to make clean energy a reality for everyday people across this country.”
