Introduction & Goal
Joined as part of the small initial team that helped the company create its base product platform and processes that ultimately was a huge factor in its unprecedented growth. As an outside consultant, I worked closely with the Renovate America in-house product team to help drive innovation and results for the product line.


Process & Experience


The Outcome

Highlighted Accomplishments:
HERO has since grown to be the leading residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program in the U.S., financing more than $2.1 billion of home improvements in partnership with local governments. Many estimate the HERO program is on track to save its customers nearly $3.5 billion in energy and water bills and has created over 18,000 local jobs that cannot be off-shored or automated. Renovate America is now known for building the world's largest green bond platform.



Specific Role Contributions
Mainly responsible for helping establish a design lead culture and product, while also creating the initial end-user interface direction and pattern library for the 3.0 redesign of HERO's multi-user & domain platform.
