Wendy Kertesz named director of U.S. Green Building Council NEO chapter

Monday, June 01, 2015

The Northeast Ohio chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council trade group announced Monday, June 1, that Wendy Kertesz is its new director.

Kertesz brings more than 20 years of marketing, sales and business development experience to the trade group, which is focused on generating support and providing information on sustainability, energy efficiency and renewable efforts.

In the news release announcing her appointment, Kertesz said, “I want the NEO USGBC to become known as the resource for every organization that wants to learn how to become green and sustainable. If we each make one little change, it can have a huge impact on your backyards.”

Joe Paterniti, chairman of NEO USGBC, said Kertesz was selected for the job because of her passion for green and sustainability initiatives that can make an impact on Northeast Ohio.

“She lives and breathes sustainability,” Paterniti said. He said the chapter can prove the positive impact that green and LEED practices can have on a company’s bottom line.

NEO USGBC is an umbrella organization formed by multiple interested groups associated with construction in the residential, commercial, industrial and institutional markets
