It’s been a season of changes for Fresh Energy. This spring, we welcomed two new staff to our operations department and made several exciting internal promotions.
After a long search, we’re pleased to introduce our new Operations Director. Mat Larson Krisetya comes to us with more than 20 years of experience, and has facilitated organizational change within nonprofits, humanitarian emergency agencies, and United States federal government projects. His past work has taken him around the world and he’s happy to finally be back in Minnesota. Mat will be leading up the financial and day-to-day operations of Fresh Energy, while co-creating with staff a productive and welcoming work environment.
For visitors to our office in downtown Saint Paul, there’s a new face up front. Marta Cardoza, our Administrative and Human Resources Associate, joins the Fresh Energy team with many years of experience in the human resources field. She has spent time in the nonprofit, corporate, and hospitality industries and will be working alongside Mat to holistically support our staff.
Fresh Energy’s Jillian Theuer, who previously held Marta’s role, has been promoted to a Development and Executive Associate. Jillian will be deploying her superb communication and organizational experience to help our Individual Giving team and will also serve as a liaison to our board of directors.
There have also been positive changes in Fresh Energy’s energy markets department. Last month, Allen Gleckner earned a promotion to Senior Director of Energy Markets and Regulatory Affairs. Allen will continue to serve as technical expert, selecting strategic regulatory interventions to decarbonize our electricity system with wind and solar, as well as supervise several senior policy associates.
Finally, for over five years, Sarah Clark, our Chief Program Advancement Officer, has been at the helm of Fresh Energy’s current and emerging initiatives, assisting our executive director in ensuring that programs are planned, staffed, and executed for maximum effectiveness. Now, Sarah will continue her leadership as our Deputy Executive Director. We are thrilled to have Sarah serve in this capacity!
