Rowan has been a part of the Earth Economics team since 2010. From urban infrastructure to disaster recovery and resilience, he leads the organization’s work around finance and investment strategies and is a critical part of our business development team. His work has helped to usher in policy changes at the local, state, and federal levels by identifying key opportunities and fostering powerful partnerships among diverse stakeholders. Whether he’s working with municipal utilities, federal agencies, multi-national NGOS, local community groups, or private businesses, Rowan excels at identifying funding mechanisms and policy levers that yield the greatest economic, environmental, and social benefits. When he’s not making the business case for nature, you can find him on the tennis courts or hiking a trail somewhere in the Pacific Northwest.
