The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has tapped Peter Templeton to lead the organization as its new president.
While at the U.S. Green Building
Council (USGBC), the organization says that Templeton was vital to the early
development of the LEED green building certification system, the launch of the
LEED Accredited Professional (LEEP AP) program, the expansion of USGBC’s educational
programming, and the spin-off of GBCI earlier this year.
“Peter’s long history of exceptional
leadership within the green building movement makes him the ideal President of
GBCI,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, ceo and founding chair, USGBC. “Peter has
been integrally involved in both USGBC's biggest milestones and its day-to-day
achievements, and he will bring the same commitment to the integrity of the
work to his new role.”
