“Evan joins eMERGE with a wealth of relevant experience and the key skills that the Board was seeking in its next ED.” stated Tom Ewart, the Chair of the eMERGE Board of Directors. “He has run several organizations and is highly-connected in our community. Evan brings to eMERGE the experience, skills and passion to help all Guelphites save money through more sustainable living.”

“This is what I’m built for”, says Ferrari. “I’ve been helping folks reduce their energy costs since my 20s in volunteer and work capacities. I love eMERGE’s approach. It’s got my fingerprints all over it.”
