UMC welcomes Bonnie Frye Hemphill to its team as director of policy and partnerships. She will provide strategic policy leadership on the next generation of the built environment, as well as expertise in partnership development and external communications. Bonnie will also put to work her clean-economy expertise for UMC.
“We are excited to have Bonnie join us at UMC,” said Steve Brooks, vice president of business development. “Bringing her onto our team bolsters our focus and investment in supporting deep efficiency goals and strengthens our depth to consult clients on ways to integrate clean technologies into their infrastructure.”
Previous to UMC, Bonnie was opening new markets for solar in the northwest. Her career started at the northwest nonprofit Climate Solutions and has also included the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, the White House Council on Environmental Quality, and the Environmental & Energy Technology Council of Maine.
Bonnie holds a BA from Middlebury College and a masters from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. When she isn’t accelerating the business of commercial energy efficiency, she’s outside pursuing trails with friends, dogs, and her adventurous toddler.
