MY BACKGROUND

I grew up in Massachusetts, USA, where I spent the first 24 years of my life in a quiet (boring) town. In 2015, I moved to New York to continue my work with residential energy efficiency in a start-up company.  After a couple years in the workforce, I decided to pursue a graduate degree in renewable energy. I ended up moving to Germany for graduate school. After finishing, I found a job in Denmark with DC.

WHY I WANTED TO WORK FOR DC

As an American living abroad, I wanted to see for myself the famous Scandinavian work-life balance. Joking aside, DC seemed like a really progressive company with a great working culture where I could take responsibility and navigate my own success. 

The best part of my job is doing something that no one in the company has done before

Eric Card, Business Developer

WHAT I DO

I am charged with developing new business opportunities for DC with climate-related products. This means that I find new and interesting products in the market and build up the internal processes and knowledge necessary to trade those products within the current company set-up. I conduct “Proof of Concept” trades from start to finish, taking ownership of the entire process and coordinating with internal and external stakeholders. 

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

There is no typical work day for me. I do find that my work runs in cycles. It starts with doing market research and analysis into a potential product. Then I will move more into a market facing role where I will originate buyers and sellers for the product.  After building a more concrete business case, I will then bring the case forth to my colleagues to gain the necessary approvals and build the internal capacities to execute on the case. Finally, after closing the first trade, I will work to scale up trading acitivities of this new product.
