(Washington, D.C.) – DC Green Bank is proud to announce Trisha Miller as its next Chief Executive Officer. Ms. Miller comes to the bank after her recent service in the Biden – Harris Administration as a Senior Director in the White House Domestic Policy Office working on decarbonization policy and following a multi-decade career working at the nexus of climate change, clean energy, and inclusive development. She will officially begin her tenure at DC Green Bank on July 31.
“We are excited to have an experienced leader like Trisha Miller lead DC Green Bank into its next chapter. She has a demonstrated track record of putting climate, clean energy, and communities first and being guided by values that align with the mission of the bank,” said Brandi Colander, Chair of the DC Green Bank Board of Directors. “The Board is confident that Trisha is the right leader for this vital institution and we stand ready to support her work to ensure that DCGB remains an indispensable partner as the District strives to achieve its ambitious sustainability and equitable development targets. We want to thank our Chief Financial Officer and Interim-Chief Executive Officer, Jean Nelson-Houpert, for her service and dedication to the bank and for serving in this expanded capacity and leading the organization and staff in pursuit of our shared goals of a more resilient and inclusive DC for all.”
Ms. Nelson-Houpert has served in the Interim-Chief Executive Officer role since October 2022. “I want to thank the Board of Directors for their trust in my leadership to serve in this role and deliver operational excellence during a time of transition,” said Ms. Nelson-Houpert. “I am excited to work with Trisha to build on the impact the DC Green Bank team has delivered to date for communities across the District.”
DC Green Bank initiated full operations in April 2020, and Ms. Miller will join the institution shortly after the five-year mark since the creation of the bank was authorized under the leadership of Mayor Muriel Bowser and the DC City Council. “I am honored to serve as the CEO of DC Green Bank,” Miller said. “DC has been my home for nearly two decades, and I look forward to leading the bank and helping to ensure that our climate investments advance inclusive prosperity for all residents.”
