Grey Lee, Executive Director, LEED AP BD&C

Grey is the chief facilitator of the US Green Building Council community in Massachusetts, serving as executive director since  2012. He manages the organization's daily activities and leads the Chapter in achieving its mission. He has a keen interest in helping the broader community of stakeholders recognize how green buildings support and resolve many environmental, social justice, and sustainability issues. By connecting more people to the benefits of green buildings, we will be able to see a groundswell of support to change policy and change market preferences toward better buildings and urban planning. Grey has a background in commercial brokerage and real estate services, and community engagement. He serves on the boards of two other community organizations in the Boston area.

Celis Brisbin, Director of Operations

It was in the Peace Corps where his commitment to solving the climate issue was galvanized. He witnessed the most vulnerable communities impacted by record droughts and storms. The combination of these events decimated crops, hungered the impoverished and destabilized a nation. As a Peace Corps Volunteer, he knew that the United States has the highest emission per capita while also having the greatest resources and voice to remedy this global issue. Upon his completion of service, he returned to the US driven by my commitment to be the voice for stakeholders affected by climate change and to work towards a solution.

He has spent the past few years in renewable energy and then looking at the greater context of building design, efficiency and operation, now able to lead a community of stakeholders at the Chapter. His role interfaces with the leaders of the environmental movement and engaging firms and individuals on the impact of buildings on the environment.

He coordinates the organization’s programs around supporting the mission for regenerative communities. He supports the legislative program, curates the educational programming and promotes the cross-collaboration of leaders within our community of practitioners.
