Doug served as a special advisor to Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his office in the development of PlaNYC, the City’s sustainability plan, which commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent (while adding a million new residents) by 2030. Doug’s consulting firm, Serrafix, then worked with the Mayor’s staff to develop a detailed analysis of implementation challenges and recommended solutions. Serrafix has also worked with other cities throughout the nation on commercial and industrial sector energy efficiency strategies.
Prior to founding Serrafix, Douglas was Secretary of Commonwealth Development in the cabinet of Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, where he oversaw transportation, housing, environment and energy agencies with combined annual capital budgets of $5 billion and a total workforce exceeding 11,000. This unique position enabled him to put into practice policy approaches he developed over twenty-five years as head of the Conservation Law Foundation, New England’s premier environmental advocacy organization.
Doug holds a BS from Princeton University and JD from Harvard Law School.
