We are excited to share that Amir Rezaei, PhD, LEED Green Associate, BPAC, has been appointed to the Western New York Sustainable Business Roundtable (WNY SBR) Board of Directors. WNY SBR is a coalition of over 85 local businesses that have pledged to optimize their use of energy and materials to promote a healthy community and make sustainability an attainable goal. The Buffalo office is a founding partner of the WNY SBR and currently stands as a Distinguished Member, meaning that CannonDesign has submitted a sustainability pledge, plan and progress.

Amir is a Sustainability Leader and High Performance Building Analyst in our Buffalo office. Describing himself as an intrapreneur, he pushes for change within our firm to better reach efficient design solutions. As a board member of WNY SBR, he hopes to further such accomplishments within the firm and the Western New York community.

Amir’s interest in taking on a leadership role stems from his commitment to the Buffalo region and a desire to create tangible impact within the entire community. He believes that as a young immigrant to the U.S., he provides a unique perspective to the board that will allow him to foster a stronger “yes, it is possible” culture within member businesses. His goal is to turn WNY into an energy reduction pioneer by proposing community-scale strategies that will offer business solutions while strengthening the triple bottom line for members of WNY SBR.

In addition to engaging the broader WNY community, Amir aims to make further impact at CannonDesign. He hopes to bring collective benefit to both our firm and WNY SBR by leveraging partnerships and knowledge of sustainable practices. His continued commitment to pushing limits and thinking outside of the box makes him an asset to our entire community. Congratulations, Amir!
