Washington, D.C.—The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has named Lisa Revitte chief operating officer, supporting both USGBC and Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI). In this newly created role, Revitte will support business leaders in a variety of areas including facilities, finance, human resources, legal and technology, the company said.

“Lisa is an outstanding complement to our global leadership team,” said Peter Templeton, president and CEO, USGBC and GBCI. “I am confident in her ability to help strengthen the capabilities and performance of our organizations as we work to address urgent challenges facing our communities worldwide. It is an important time for USGBC and GBCI, and having an experienced COO is vital as we continue to pursue our mission at even greater speed and scale. Lisa’s expertise will be fundamental as we seek to transform USGBC’s strong legacy of leadership into the platform of partnership, collaboration and innovation we need to advance a prosperous and equitable future.”

Revitte has 20 years of operations experience and served as the chief operating officer for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and most recently held the same position at FOX Architects, LLC. Prior to that, Revitte served USGBC and GBCI from 2006-2014 in various capacities including director of operations for GBCI and director of enterprise performance for USGBC and GBCI. Revitte brings a wealth of knowledge in managing finance, human resources, technology, compliance and project management.

USGBC and GBCI said they are currently conducting a strategic review to act on opportunities for improvement across its programs and operations. The new COO role is an important element in the success of these efforts. The review will ensure the organizations are well positioned to scale their work to support unprecedented public and private sector commitments to advancing health, decarbonization, equity and other ESG goals through green building.
