Lachlan began his energy and sustainability career 16 years ago at Summit Energy initially focused on procuring natural gas on behalf of many companies.   As Schneider Electric acquired Summit Energy in 2011 and sustainability became more prevalent in the marketplace, Lachlan leveraged new capabilities to drive more value for customers.  Additional to his procurement background, he’s held roles in Energy and Sustainability Sales and Account Director in the Commercial Real Estate segment.

Lachlan loves watching Marvel movies with his kids, tinkering in the yard, and volunteering at his church.  Rumor has it also that he makes a superb old fashioned.
