Kristopher Stevens, one of the principle Officers of OSEA, has announced that he will be stepping down to start his own consulting business. "The past eight years at OSEA have been incredible and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to serve the OSEA membership." Kristopher explains, "I am looking forward to this new chapter in my career and continuing as an active OSEA member in the years ahead."
Joe Mulhall on behalf of the Board of Directors stated "The Board made the decision more than a year ago to create the new position of Director of Operations and Finance and to divide the responsibilities for the management of OSEA into two separate positions reporting directly to the Board. The Board was pleased that Nicole Risse agreed to take on that new role and her performance in the last year has proven that she was a good choice. We are confident in her ability to manage the business of OSEA. Kristopher leaving will not affect the day to day operations at OSEA."
Nicole Risse has been a core member of OSEA for more than six years, having served as Business Development and Outreach Manager and currently as Director of Finance and Operations. She is a specialist in sustainable energy, stakeholder engagement and grassroots logistics having managed campaigns in Europe, Asia and North America. Nicole was instrumental in coordinating the successful Green Energy Act campaign, the now national Green Energy Doors Open sustainable energy showcase, the association's Powering Prosperity Awards, the monthly Energy Drinks networking event, the OSEA 20/20 Roadmap webinar series and numerous past international sustainable energy conferences.
Joe Mulhall stated further. "Nicole's strong commitment to OSEA's vision and to the members, combined with her understanding of key issues facing the sector, her organizational skills and proven management capability, will keep OSEA moving forward in a positive direction."
