As Ramanujam Leaves, What’s Next for LEED?
In a surprising announcement, Mahesh Ramanujam let the community know yesterday that he will be stepping down as president and CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and its sister organizations GBCI and Arc as of November 1. Peter Templeton, president and CEO of the Cradle to Products Innovation Institute, will step in as interim president and CEO of USGBC amid what USGBC this morning called a “review of its structure, go-to-market strategy and leadership.” Templeton has a long history with the organization, including as a senior vice president and as the first CEO of GBCI.
This is a perfect opportunity for the green building community—that means you!—to let USGBC know where you’d like to see LEED go next. Please weigh in below in the comments.
