WAYNE, PA. October 26, 2011
Finite Carbon Corporation, the forest carbon development company that provides a single-source solution for creating and monetizing carbon credits, announced today that Sean Carney has been promoted to President. Scott Nissenbaum, Founder, will move to the advisory board with a focus on strategy.
Sean Carney is one of the original founding employees and has helped build Finite Carbon into the market leader for U.S. forest carbon offset development. He has managed several roles over the past two and a half years including origination, transaction services, policy analysis, and strategic projects.
Prior to joining Finite Carbon, Sean was a broker at CantorCO2e, an emissions brokerage subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald, where he specialized in the U.S. carbon market. At CantorCO2e he worked with clients to facilitate structured transactions of carbon offsets from projects involving forestry, livestock management, landfill gas and renewable energy. Prior to CantorCO2e, Sean was one of the first employees of Carbonfund.org, which has become the largest carbon offset retailer in the United States. There he worked with corporations such as Dell, Volkswagen and Orbitz to create carbon neutral programs and managed the financing and development of the third reforestation project in the world to be validated to the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standard (CCBS).
“As a carbon market veteran, Sean has deep domain expertise and unmatched forest carbon market experience that make him the ideal candidate to provide ongoing leadership for the company.” said Robert Verratti, Chief Executive Officer of Finite Carbon.
Scott Nissenbaum, Founder and former President of Finite Carbon, will take a leadership role on the Finite Carbon Advisory Board. “Sean’s promotion couldn’t be better timed. The recent approval of ARB’s cap-and-trade rules has created an unprecedented opportunity for the growth of the company.”
