AGC Welcomes New Director of Sustainability & Operations, Steven Biedermann

25 Oct
It is with great enthusiasm that we announce AGC’s new Director of Sustainability and Operations, Steven Biedermann.

Steven most recently served as Chief Financial Officer with Namaste Solar in Boulder, CO after spending the past year as Director of Finance and Portfolio Management with Save the Children in Washington, DC.  These have been senior leadership roles with broad and diverse responsibilities accountable for a holistic spectrum of organizational resources.

Prior to joining Save the Children, Steven served five years in the administration of former CEO, and current U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan at Chicago Public Schools as Senior Investment Portfolio Manager managing the $2.1 Billion dollar Operating Fund and Capital Projects/Debt Service Funds for the district of over 600 schools.  Steven’s finance foundation was built throughout a fifteen-year career in the investment banking, capital markets, and asset management business with Fidelity Investments, Shearson Lehman Brothers, and Banc One Capital Markets.

Complimenting this professional experience, Steven has shown a tremendous commitment to education through his local and international service.  He served as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer following the events of 9/11 working as a mathematics teacher in the Pacific island nation of Kiribati, is an Advisory Board Member of Moneythink.org at University of Chicago, mentors West African and Iraqi refugees that resettle in America, and most recently taught English to university students in the West Bank and to Buddhist monks at a monastery in Pharping, Nepal.  With more than 26 years of deep and diverse financial expertise, a worldview shaped by extensive travel throughout six continents, and a committed passion for being an agent of change in global education, it is an incredible honor to welcome Steven on board the Academy for Global Citizenship’s journey.

Steven came to AGC on September 30th and enjoyed four full weeks of training and induction with Dan Schnitzer prior to Dan’s last day on October 25th.
