His experience includes the negotiation of the critical governmental permits and utility, construction, and financing agreements supporting a first-of-its-kind project in the US. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the American Wind Energy Association.

      Mr. Grybowski previously served as Chief of Staff to the Governor of the State of Rhode Island, where he was the Governor’s most senior advisor on all matters of state business.
