The US Green Building Council recently announced the appointment of Scot Horst to the position of Senior Vice-President, Leed, a new position in the organisation. The appointment is effective April 1.
"Scot's visionary leadership has been much in evidence in his role as chair of the Leed Steering Committee these past three years," said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and founding chair, USGBC and board chair, GBCI. "The evolution of Leed under his 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 organisation underscores our intent to continue Leed's upward momentum as the market's tool of choice for advancing green building."
"USGBC stands at the nexus between buildings and humanity," said Horst.
"Thanks to the incredible work of this organisation, the question is no longer 'How do we do less harm?' rather, it has become 'How can we do more good? How can we make buildings restorative and ultimately regenerative? Leed is the focal point that makes these questions possible, and advancing the whole systems thinking it requires is a mission I am passionate about."
During his Leed Steering Committee chairmanship, Horst has overseen the development of Leed for Core and Shell, Leed for Schools, Revisions to Leed for Existing Buildings among others.
