Peter W. Davidson is Co-founder and CEO of the Aligned Intermediary (AI), an investment advisory group created to help large scale, long-term investors (LTIs) channel significant amounts of institutional capital into resource innovation. Prior to AI, Davidson was the Executive Director of the Loan Programs Office (LPO) at the U.S. Department of Energy. Appointed to that position by President Obama in May 2013, he oversaw the program's $30 billion portfolio. Before LPO, Davidson was the Executive Director of New York State's Empire State Development Corporation. Prior to entering government service, Davidson founded and/or managed six media companies. Since 2001, Davidson has also been chairman of the JM Kaplan Fund, a family foundation with over $150 million in assets. Earlier in his career, Davidson was an executive in the investment banking division of Morgan Stanley & Co. He holds a BA from Stanford University and an MBA from the Harvard Business School. For the past 25 years, Davidson has lived in Brooklyn, NY, where he also serves on a number of boards of local Brooklyn institutions.
"Envisions' clean energy transportation and outdoor media products are tailor-made for my experience and relationships," stated Peter Davidson. "I've already been able to assist the company in its growth efforts in New York City and I'm looking forward to working with the management team and the rest of the board towards the success that I'm confident this company can attain."
Donald Moody, recent board member of Envision Solar, said, "Envision is a great company with a great team. I've really enjoyed being part of its journey and am delighted that we have been able to get the company to a point whereby we can attract talent like Peter to the board."
"Envision is continuing to evolve into a world class company," said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. "Our products are outstanding, we're getting the right kinds of sales contracts and our boards' evolution reflects that. Earlier this year, we brought Tony Posawatz on to assist with our green transportation efforts. Now, we have Peter with his government and media background. He's another great fit. I also want to thank Don for all that he has done in helping us get to this point."
