Southface is delighted to announce that we will expand our Policy Team on June 20 with the addition of Lisa Bianchi-Fossati as Director of Policy. Lisa will be our team leader, as Southface expands our policy agenda and more fully integrates all of our organizational capacities in support of advocacy.
Lisa has fifteen years of experience with Accenture, where she worked with electric, gas and water utilities in North America and Europe. She designed, developed and implemented business and technology solutions across all supplier segments, including generation, network operations and retail service provision. Most recently, she supported the Georgia Legacy Coalition with its efforts to establish a long-term, sustainable source of funding for land and water conservation in Georgia.
As Dennis has said: "Southface’s work to transform the markets for clean energy and sustainable development calls for exceptional expertise and commitment, and Lisa brings both.” There are not many opportunities to add Lisa’s kind of talent and experience to our work, and we are very fortunate that the timing was right for both Lisa and Southface.
