NSI, a Washington, D.C.-based government and business consulting firm, has announced the expansion of its energy and environment practice. Managing director Terry Tamminen and senior advisor Bonnie Reiss join vice president Kevin Matthews as part of the leadership team.

"The team's vast experience across the renewable and alternative energy sectors, combined with our external relationships across the globe, complement our goal to develop and execute sustainable solutions for our clients," says Al Gordon, CEO of NSI. "This team has been instrumental in advancing environmental policy around the world. They have an in-depth understanding of where economic, social and environmental opportunities intersect in the state and local government marketplace."

Tamminen was the secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2003 and served as the chief policy advisor to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, R-Calif. Tamminen continues to advise Schwarzenegger and several other U.S. governors on climate and energy.

Reiss served as senior advisor to Schwarzenegger from 2003-2007 and was the governor's point person on education, environment, women's issues, public safety and children's health. She was also involved in passing progressive environment and energy laws in California.

Matthews was director of government relations for AIG Environmental and held multiple positions with the U.S. EPA in Washington D.C.
