AFFILIATIONS

Randy is an accomplished Senior Executive and Board Member with more than 25 years of success across the non-profit, finance, energy, and technology industries. He has fulfilled roles ranging from Vice-President of Business Development, to Chief Operating Officer, President, and Chief Executive Officer. His broad areas of expertise include sustainability, energy conservation, financial services, fundraising, business development, and organizational leadership.

Two significant accomplishments include: Energy Masters International, serving as the VP of Sales & Operations, leading the $125 million unregulated subsidiary of Xcel Energy (a $50 billion gas & electric utility), and most recently as EVP of Global Business Development for Lighting Science Group, a publicly traded LED lighting manufacturer.

Since launching World Wide Village, a 501C3, in 2006, he has set his focus on creating sustainable communities primarily in Haiti as well as in partnering countries such as Trinidad, Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, St. Lucia, Guyana, Uganda and Ghana, focusing on community development by building and sponsoring local churches and schools, ensuring access to safe water, sanitation, healthcare, and sustainable jobs - all with a goal of eliminating "chronic dependency".

In 2015 and 2016, Randy served on The President's Task Force for the Redevelopment and Revitalization of Puerto Rico, which required him to meet with the group on a semi-annual basis at the White House Office Building to discuss strategies and implementation plans for the project. Additionally, in 2010 he served in a leadership role with the Clinton Foundation on the rebuilding efforts of Haiti after the catastrophic 7.0 Mw earthquake devastated much of the area; all efforts were focused on rebuilding Haiti into a sustainable country without dependency on global aid.
