Tim Carmichael Named CCEEB President and Chief Executive Officer

On June 24th, the board of directors of the California Council for Environmental and Economic Balance (CCEEB) announced appointing Tim Carmichael as its seventh President and CEO. Carmichael will join the CCEEB Team on July 1st and will succeed current President and CEO Bill Quinn upon Bill’s retirement on August 1st.

“CCEEB is deeply honored by the impressive number of people who applied to become the next President and CEO–any of whom would have been able to lead CCEEB into the next half-century of trailblazing public policy,” says Sunne Wright McPeak, CCEEB Chair. “Tim brings a breadth of experiences as a chief executive, working across the spectrum of stakeholders who must be at the table as partners to policymakers and regulators to achieve the State's goals for the environment, economy, and equity. He will roll up his sleeves and dive in to represent CCEEB Members in fostering collaboration for breakthrough strategies to accelerate progress into the future.”

Specifically, Carmichael brings over 20 years of environmental leadership in both the non-profit and private sectors. Most recently, he served as State Agency Relations Manager for Sempra Utilities, working with one of the best government affairs teams in Sacramento to develop and pass important energy, transportation, and environmental policy.
