The American Clean Power Association (ACP) has announced two new senior appointments. Both positions start April 5. Rod O’Connor joins ACP as Chief Commercialisation and Engagement Officer where he’ll spearhead the long-term research and development strategy to identify, vet, and launch new products and services that diversify and expand the association’s offerings.
Additionally, he’ll oversee the Meetings & Education and Member Value divisions. While the association continues to unroll its multi-tech policy agenda, O’Connor will also serve as the architect of ACP’s advocacy team activation plan tied to the organisation’s strategic priorities. O’Connor is President of the ROC Group where he advises leaders in business, government, and politics through strategic transitions.
Jason Clark joins ACP as Chief Strategy Officer responsible for bringing ACP’s mission and vision to life internally and externally. Additionally, Jason will oversee efforts to build relationships with industry and non-profit organisations and forge partnerships and alliances in the renewable energy advocacy space to advance the country’s transition to a majority renewable energy portfolio. Clark was most recently a Partner and the Vice President of Strategy for Ballast Research, the consulting firm retained by the founding member companies of ACP to help conceptualise and drive the formation of the new association.
Clark’s appointment marks a shift in roles for ACP’s Heather Meier who will now serve as Chief Operations Officer where she’ll play a lead role in the growth and expansion of ACP overseeing Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Operations.
