The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has appointed two new members to its board of directors: Kathrin Winkler and Michael Sachse.

Winkler is senior vice president and chief sustainability officer of EMC, a company that builds information infrastructure products and services that help IT departments store, manage, protect, and analyze information to drive economic and energy efficiency. EMC is a partner in ACEEE's intelligent energy efforts.

Sachse is senior vice president of regulatory affairs, business development and general counsel of OPower. ACEEE says the company works with utility partners using big data analytics to deliver behavioral efficiency and demand response.

"We welcome Kathrin and Michael and appreciate their willingness to guide and advise us on the direction of ACEEE," says Steven Nadel, ACEEE's executive director. "These talented professionals will add valuable experience and perspective to the board of directors."

The ACEEE board has also expressed deep appreciation to Rose McKinney-James, who is transitioning off the board, for her 11 years of service. McKinney-James is the managing principal of Energy Works based in Las Vegas. She served as the chair of the awards committee, guiding ACEEE's public recognition of those companies, organizations, and individuals leading in the energy efficiency field. She also served on three additional board committees: the strategic planning, policy, and nomination and governance committees.
