USGBC Names Senior VP, LEED

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Comment | More

The U.S. Green Building Council has named Scot Horst to the newly created position of senior vice president, LEED.

The USGBC said Horst, chairman of the USGBC’s LEED Steering Committee the past three years, is a recognized leader in the sustainable-design movement as a partner in 7group, a green-building consultancy. He also has been president of the Athena Institute International, where he has been involved in work related to lifecycle assessment.

As chairman of the LEED Steering Committee, Horst has overseen the development of LEED for Core and Shell, LEED for Schools, revisions to LEED for Existing Buildings, LEED for Neighborhood Development, LEED for Homes, LEED for Healthcare, and LEED 2009.

Rick Fedrizzi, USGBC president, CEO, and founding chairman said the evolution of LEED under Horst’s watch “culminates with the launch of LEED v3, which sets a new benchmark for high-performance buildings. His transition to a full-time senior staff position in the organization underscores our intent to continue LEED’s upward momentum as the market’s tool of choice for advancing green building.”
