Why CEE?: I work at CEE because the staff are great and the work is ever-changing. I leave each day looking forward to coming back.
In Jeni's words:
CEE's best-earned distinction is that we provide quality service and honest answers to our clients. Whether through our research, lending, lighting, or residential programs, our customers and clients can trust CEE's deep level of commitment. Given our strong history, I predict CEE will continue to lead Minnesota in energy efficiency — advancing the field through research into new technologies and community engagement, all leading to CEE's next big programmatic offering. I see a future where CEE helps communities actively engage in creating cultural foundation and building infrastructure that supports carbon reduction.
My daily work contributes to CEE's mission by providing leadership and support to the organization as a whole. I look for ways to positively and productively manage staff, mitigate corporate risk, insure against threats, and provide sound financial management to the organization.
I am proud to be a member of CEE's finance, administrative and lending teams. Our finance staff are known by clients and customers alike for providing accurate and timely financial reporting. Clients know from experience that if CEE gets their project, our financial and lending team is up to any task. From understanding auditing standards to managing complex contracts, providing financials to the board, underwriting hundreds of loans, and supporting CEE staff administratively, the entire team is fabulous and dedicated to doing things right.
