The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) has a new chief.

Alicia Barton McDevitt has been appointed as the organization's executive director and CEO by Rick Sullivan, Massachusetts' secretary for energy and environmental affairs.

Prior to joining MassCEC, Barton McDevitt served as deputy commissioner for policy and planning at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. She also served in other various positions, including assistant secretary for environmental review, Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) director, and deputy general counsel at the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs from 2007 to 2011.

Barton McDevitt replaces outgoing CEO Patrick Cloney, who is leaving the organization to pursue new opportunities in the private sector, MassCEC notes. As the founding CEO, Cloney launched the organization in 2009 and established it as a clean energy deployment and workforce development advocate.
