Frank Spasaro Appointed Syzergy Executive Director

 

On Thursday, February 8, 2018, Syzergy’s Board of Directors announced the appointment of Frank Spasaro as the organization’s first Executive Director. Prior to his appointment, Frank served as an Advisor to the Board of Directors. 

Frank retired from Sempra Utilities in 2017. During his tenure with the company, he filled managerial roles with both San Diego Gas and Electric Co. and Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas). A seasoned energy efficiency professional, Frank led a multi-stakeholder initiative to develop financing strategies and programs for the state’s regulated energy utility programs while concurrently managing SoCalGas’ portfolio of energy efficiency partnerships. He also led development of SoCalGas’ water-energy nexus program. Frank holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Southern California.

I was delighted when Frank advised that he could play a larger role in Syzergy after he retired,” said Laurie Park, Syzergy’s President. “I had worked with Frank for more than eight years on water-energy nexus projects and the California Sustainability Alliance program, a market transformation initiative funded by SoCalGas, and knew him to be a creative and effective leader with solid managerial skills. This rare mix of skills is just what a start-up non-profit like Syzergy needs.

Frank is joining Syzergy at a critical time, as Syzergy prepares to launch its first major project, an innovative water, energy and greenhouse gas educational and awareness program that will help to build drought resilience in California’s water-challenged South San Joaquin Valley. Paul Thomas, Vice President of Syzergy, said “We are excited to be able to bring Frank’s proven leadership to this important initiative.”

Frank is an avid photographer and can often be found outside, taking celestial and MotorSport photographs. His portfolio and breadth of work can be viewed here.

Syzergy is excited to have Frank’s able assistance as we kick off 2018 with some new and exciting things. Stay tuned!
