JEREMY MADSEN

Executive Director

杰里米最喜欢的两件事是伟大的城市和令人惊叹的自然景观, and, living in the Bay Area over the past 20+ years, he has had no shortage of these.  A day can literally start with a hike in redwoods, followed by lunch at a sidewalk café serving local specialties, and end with an afternoon at a world class museum. What could be better than that? 

Jeremy was born and raised in the suburbs of Salt Lake City, Utah by a father who owned a company that built HVAC ductwork, and a mother who was a proud environmentalist. 他的成长经历和毕生的兴趣都集中在建筑环境和自然环境之间的交集,以及它们与社会公平的关系, community vitality, and, to say it simply, 快乐让他在Greenbelt Alliance担任了10年的首席执行官, 是湾区首屈一指的土地保护和土地利用倡导非政府组织. 

Build It Green was a natural step for Jeremy. 因为它变成了一个组织,它不接受在住房负担能力之间必须权衡, climate protection and other environmental issues, and social equity and justice, 他期待着在住房生态系统中架起桥梁,服务于所有不同的选民,从根本上改变这个州未来几十年的样子, in doing so, can make California a model for the nation.

In his free time, 杰里米通常在足球场或者听着各种类型的摇滚乐(朋克), Celtic, classic, grunge).
