FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 23, 2014, Toronto, ON – motum b2b is pleased to announce that its President and CEO, Richard Willingham, has been elected to the Net-Zero Energy Coalition (NZEC) Board of Directors. The NZEC is a federally incorporated, multi-stakeholder not-for-profit organization comprised of North American champions in advanced energy efficient construction and building products, the utility sector, research and development, and manufacturing and deployment of on-site renewable energy technologies.
“At motum b2b, we’ve long supported the idea that one day, everyone will live and work in a net-zero energy building,” says Willingham. “My volunteering for service on the NZEC board is just another step along the path toward that goal. I am honored to be able to support the coalition and its mission in this way.”
Willingham brings his decades of experience in sustainability marketing to the table to help the NZEC raise brand awareness and spread the message of its mission. With a history of helping leading B2B brands like BASF, Philips Lighting Canada, the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and Lafarge Eastern Canada craft and share their sustainability stories, Willingham hopes to contribute a great deal to the NZEC branding and marketing efforts.
“Success of the net-zero energy mission will deliver tremendous benefits for the triple bottom line – economy, ecology and society. I am very much looking forward to getting that story heard, and I know every member of the motum b2b team is standing ready to help in their own areas of expertise,” says Willingham.

- David B. Carolan, CEO/Founder, Solid Green Companies – Austin, TX
