Jeffrey Conrad Wuorinen Joins Abt as Vice President, Just Climate and Energy Transitions
Rockville, Md. – Jeffrey Wuorinen is Abt Associates’ new Vice President, Just Climate and Energy Transitions. His career spans more than 100 countries and two decades of experience working at the intersection of the built and natural environment, with a focus on innovative public-private partnerships, social, economic, and environmental equity, evidence-informed public policy, blue and green infrastructure, and low carbon renewable energy. In his new role, Wuorinen will lead Abt’s international climate and energy portfolio, working with U.S. government clients such as USAID to plan and implement large-scale projects to address the climate crisis equitably with partner countries.
Prior to joining Abt, he served as Executive Director of Chemonics UK and Senior Vice President for Water, Energy and Sustainable Cities at Chemonics International. Earlier in his career, he led the public-private partnerships practice of a leading architecture-engineering firm and managed research, capacity building, and advisory programs at a groundbreaking Washington, DC think tank.
“Jeff’s expertise and experience perfectly align with Abt’s priorities,” explained Allyson Bear, Abt’s Head of U.S. International Practice. “Promoting equity both in the execution of our work and in our teams and collaborating with the public and private sector are central to Abt’s climate, energy, and environment work and Jeff has made this the center of his approach as well.”
Wuorinen received BAs in Political Science and International Studies from Saint Louis University.
