Education: Master's in Renewable Energy Engineering and Management
Position: Business Developer
Employed since: April 2019
Fun fact: I won "Best laugh" for Senior Superlative in High School
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.
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.
Eric Card, Business Developer
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.
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.
The best part of my job is doing something that no one in the company has done before. I take pride in bringing new business and future value for DC.
The success of our company is built on having the brightest minds working across the entire organisation.
