Devon Treece

Product Manager
Clean Power Finance
MBA/MS Program 2009

Devon is focused on finding creative solutions to environmental and social problems that might arise in emerging markets. Particularly, he would like to explore ways to avoid these problems entirely through innovative business models. In the past, he has conducted scientific research to assess ecological responses to environmental degradation as well as to elucidate human responses to toxicologic environments. He is now attempting to create small-scaled yet broadly applicable development solutions that will render his previous research endeavors irrelevant. He graduated from Oberlin College with a double major in Biology and Environmental Studies.
