Susan Greene joined ASES as President in September 2011. She brings to the job a long record of accomplishment in the nonprofit, private and government sectors. Most recently, she was senior vice president at The Cable Center, located on the University of Denver campus, where she created and expanded The Center’s informational, educational and professional development programs for the cable industry, university students and faculty and the public. She recently completed her term as president of Women in Sustainable Energy (WISE), where she led the growth of this professional educational and networking organization, establishing its 501(c) (3) status, creating regularly scheduled educational and networking programs and recruiting corporate sponsors.
Previously Greene held executive positions in New York and Washington DC, at NBC, HBO, Citigroup and Time Warner Cable, where she built new businesses at the intersection of content and technology. Among her accomplishments are, the creation of early ecommerce mobile and web applications, the creation and launch of CNBC, the prototype of the Metropolitan Opera live HD broadcasts, which won two EMMY awards and the creation of Sesame Street.
Early in her career, Greene represented municipal and public interests at the Federal Communications Commission during the creation of new federal policy enabling cable television to grow into urban areas throughout the US. Later Greene joined the FCC and ran a major regulatory proceeding that set the framework for requiring television stations to run educational and informational programming for children.
Greene was educated at Smith College, The Annenberg School of Communications at The University of Pennsylvania and Columbus School of Law, Catholic University.
She sees many parallels between the 30 year maturation cycle of the cable and new media business and the renewable energy sector.
She has three adult children of whom she is very proud and spends free time skiing, biking and travelling.
