Developing energy projects is difficult, and one of the greatest challenges companies encounter involve decisions on how and when to engage stakeholders. As a communications professional with more than 20 years of experience, Andrew understands not only how and when to execute communication tactics, but he expertly designs strategic platforms that reach the right audiences at the right time to give energy projects the greatest opportunity for success.

Andrew has successfully lead communications efforts resulting in projects receiving federal, state and stakeholder approval, including leading the engagement process on the Champlain Hudson Power Express, a 333-mile transmission line that has received both its Article VII and Presidential Permits. Andrew’s experience includes leading public outreach and communication strategies for wind farms, natural gas pipelines, energy trade associations, and overhead and buried electric transmission projects. Andrew has nearly 10 years of experience and was a former Deputy Press Secretary to a New York State Governor.
