What do you like most about working at Bright Power?
Collaborating with incredibly intelligent and passionate people! I really like working for a company that has a clear vision. Bright Power’s mission is an important one, it is what gets me up in the morning. I value our role as a company that is more than a consultancy – we have positioned ourselves where the rubber meets the road, and that is what is needed to improve the energy and water performance of the built environment. We are having a real impact. I have been with Bright Power for over a decade, and it has been quite a ride! Watching the company grow from a few of us working out of a closet-sized office to a market leader 100+ strong has been deeply gratifying. Knowing that our impact is growing every year is one of the most satisfying aspects of working at Bright Power.
What are some projects and accomplishments you’re most proud of?
I am most proud of our early success here in California. It was difficult to trade in the comfort and safety of my position in New York for a business development role in a new place where no one knew the Bright Power name. But thanks to our unique Find, Fix, Follow approach and our successful track record on the East Coast, prospective clients were willing to take a chance on us. It is a great feeling to present our value proposition to a prospective client and get them bought in. Working with clients and friends at organizations such as LivCor, MG Properties Group, AIG, Fairfield Residential, Bridge Property Management, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, Equity Residential, Related, LeFrak, Kaled Management Corp., Goldman Group, Fisher Organization, and Sares Regis have made this journey well worth it.
What’s the one service offering we have that you think is the most beneficial to clients?
Our most valuable service is that we provide many services under one roof. Our integrated Find, Fix, Follow approach to energy and water management is our competitive advantage and differentiator. Once we establish trust, this approach becomes the way our clients manage energy and water.
What’s something people might not know about you and your role at Bright Power?
Something I did not know about myself is that I enjoy the thrill inherent in business development. It is a good feeling to present our value proposition to a prospective client and get them bought in.
