HOUSTON – Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) is proud to announce the addition of Leslie Liedtke Griffin as Executive Vice President of Affiliate Member Relations and Foundation Coordination.
Griffin brings a wealth of experience to her new role, which is to elevate CEA’s growth and build on its reputation as the country’s leading energy and environmental advocate for families and businesses. Griffin’s work will include leading all of CEA member communications and events, membership recruiting and marketing, and external and charitable fundraising for CEA, as well as for its sister organization, the Consumer Energy Education Foundation (CEEF).
“We are extremely excited to have Leslie join our organization at such as critical time in the national discussion around affordable, reliable and environmentally responsible energy. Her leadership will undoubtedly raise CEA’s effective energy and environmental advocacy for American families to the next level,” CEA President David Holt said. “This strategic hiring is a recognition by our Board that CEA’s growth trajectory is so strong that it needs a leader of Leslie’s caliber to build on our existing successes.”
CEA is entering its 18th year with more than 350 member organizations and a half-million individual supporters, and more consumer advocacy initiatives than at any time since its founding.
“I’m thrilled to join Consumer Energy Alliance and partner with David and the rest of the CEA Board, as well as the entire CEA team who have already done so much to advocate for energy consumers across the country,” Griffin said. “Supporting American families and businesses is truly a worthy cause and one that I’m honored to be a part of.”
Prior to joining the CEA team, Griffin served as Relationship Manager at Gulf Capital Bank, helping to build out the first de novo bank in Texas in more than a decade. She currently serves on the board at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center and has participated in a variety of fundraising efforts at Texas Children’s Hospital and Small Steps Nurturing Center.
“At this moment in CEA’s history, we need Leslie’s unique blend of relationship management, communications and external fundraising more than ever before,” Holt said. “As some states and the federal government continue to consider policies that will restrict energy choices for families and businesses, CEA will continue to be at the forefront of advocating on behalf consumers. Leslie will be an amazing asset in that effort.”
