As Founder and Managing Partner of Greentech Capital Advisors, Jeff McDermott is an exemplar of a Berkeley Leader, demonstrating throughout his career, both a willingness to Question the Status Quo and a commitment to Beyond Yourself.

In 2004, after a self described wake up to the issue and impacts of climate change, Jeff left his position as the Joint Global Head of Investment Banking at UBS, to found a different kind of investment bank — one that is purpose built and is dedicated to changing the way the world does business.

As climate concerns rise up the corporate agenda and sustainability becomes a key theme in society, Greentech Capital Advisors operates with a commitment to serving companies that are transforming the world’s energy, industrial and resources infrastructure. In 2019, Greentech was recognized as a 100 Top Impact Company by Real Leaders.

In a fireside chat format led by Catherine Wolfram, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs & Chair of the Faculty (as well as co-Director of the Energy Institute at Haas), we’ll have the opportunity to cover a variety of topics ranging from Jeff’s leadership journey; his definition of an impact company and why that matters; to his founding of Greentech and his strategy to become a market leader in sustainable investment banking.  We are also fortunate to have Owen Teach, MBA 21, and Director of Alumni Relations of BERC, join as our student DSS host.
