Community Environmental Council (CEC) CEO Dave Davis will hand over the reins to Sigrid Wright at the end of the month. Wright — who’s been with the CEC since 1995, coauthored one of the first regional energy plans in the U.S. to move away from fossil fuels, and has overseen the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival — will be the first female CEO of the 45-year-old nonprofit. “It’s an honor to lead the next chapter of CEC and to build on our legacy of finding positive environmental solutions,” said Wright, noting, “our community has some daunting challenges ahead as we look at how to maintain quality of life amidst a changing climate, long-term drought, increasing strains on resources, and other significant challenges.” Davis has been CEO since 2005.
