In addition, he currently serves as the Executive Director of the Illinois Chamber’s Energy Council. Prior to joining HeplerBroom, he served as Director of the Illinois EPA and was the Illinois Governor’s Policy Adviser on Energy and Environment. Previously, he had been Chief Legal Counsel for the Illinois EPA and, later, the Office of State Fire Marshal.
