You've seen them in action at the job site, speaking and exhibiting at various green building conferences and partnering with many sustainably-focused industry associations. Our staff members are serious about their work and share common objectives - finding ways to 'save energy' and helping our partners 'save money' by the installation of energy-efficient products. Looking more closely, you'll see there are many faces and facets of expertise within this group, as well as a wide variety of personalities that make each day fresh and interesting. As committed professionals, they of course take their jobs seriously, but also know how to keep it real and have fun. Beyond their job titles, here's a closer look at PSE's Single-Family New Construction Team.
John Forde, Market Manager: John is the Market Manager for several of PSE's programs - Single-Family and Multifamily New Construction, Multifamily Retrofit and Low Income Weatherization. He is our go-to person for upper level program planning and management decisions, and is involved in regional relations with local utilities, NEEA, Northwest ENERGY STAR Homes and numerous MBA Built Green programs. John has an extensive background in weatherization, energy audits, and inspections. Prior to joining PSE in late 2005, he implemented the BUILT SMART Program during his tenure with Seattle City Light.
Co-workers describe John as: Wise, diligent and detailed.
In John's words: I am a juggler.
For Fun: John enjoys skiing. He skis both lift served and backcountry. He has skied several mountains including Rainier, Baker and White Pass. "The Pacific Northwest is blessed with snow almost year round. This allowed me to ski 32 months in a row!"
Megan Doyle, Program Manager: With over ten years of experience working in PSE's Energy Efficiency Services division, Megan provides a wealth of electric and natural gas product knowledge as well as extensive lighting expertise to our team. She manages the business development outreach efforts and examines cross market opportunities. Megan also oversees the program budget, incentive measure evaluation, incentive processing and is the face to many of external partners.
Co-workers describe Megan as: Thoughtful, detailed, dedicated and encouraging.
In Megan's words: I am determined.
For Fun: Megan loves living life. She lives minutes from Richmond Beach and enjoys walking the beach looking for unique shells and beach glass. She's into the thrill of skiing and dirt biking. On the weekends you can often find her looking for garage and estate sales to find old treasures. She has two beautiful girls that she adores.
Kevin Peterson, Program Coordinator: Kevin has been an integral part of the Single-Family New Construction team since 2006. He has been the face of PSE to the builder community for most of his tenure. Kevin is responsible for all builder and partner outreach, incentive verification and working in tandem with Megan to make sure the needs of our partners are met and that our savings targets are achieved.
Co-workers describe Kevin as: Energetic, seeker, self-assured and exuberant.
In Kevin's words: I am enthusiastic.
For Fun: Kevin enjoys spending all his free time with his wife, family and friends. He also loves to travel; particularly to warm climates. You will never find him indoors (if he can help it) in the summer. He is a Leo and likes long walks on the beach.
Sean Abadilla, Rebate Analyst: We have been lucky enough to have Sean as part of our team since 2008. Sean brings a strong technical background in database applications and is responsible for paying all of our builder incentives. Sean has also been assisting in the creation of program forms that help streamline our incentive process.
Co-workers describe Sean as: Level-headed, detailed, enthusiastic and steadfast.
In Sean words: I am efficient.
For Fun: Sean is jazzed by watching live concerts; his favorite genre include hip-hop, rock and of course, jazz. You can often find him relaxing after hours playing NES video games or lying on his couch watching a good movie. If he's not found there, he's enjoying quality time with his girlfriend and riding his bike.
Kim Williams, Marketing Manager: To complement our business development outreach, Kim manages the strategic development and execution of an integrated marketing plan that includes the gamut of communication tools and various co-operatives. Joining PSE in 2007, she brings over twenty years of business-to-business marketing experience working in the A/E/C industry. Kim currently splits her time working between our Single-Family New Construction and the Multifamily Retrofit programs.
Co-workers describe Kim as: Professional, steadfast, committed and thorough.
In Kim's words: I am a creative soul.
For Fun: Bitten by the photo bug, Kim is often found behind a camera lens and playing around with lighting equipment trying to capture special moments with friends and her beloved family. She gravitates towards anything that offers an artist release, from jewelry design to graphic and photo manipulation. She's active in many sports yet receives the biggest buzz from daily asanas.
