Prior to BluEarth, Kathy was the Chief Financial Officer of Canadian Hydro Developers, a publicly-traded renewable energy company. Kathy played a key role in raising over $900 million in equity and debt financing for the company’s construction projects, and in the financial analysis and modeling for several successful competitive bids for power purchase agreements and acquisitions.
