He has spent the last three years advancing renewable energy projects and was most recently Managing Director of High Road Clean Energy, which he co-founded with fellow industry veterans.

“Tedd is a great addition to the Leeward team, and I am excited to be working with him again,” said Greg Wolf, CEO of Leeward. “After closing our transaction with OMERS in 2018, Leeward has moved to a growth phase as part of our Leeward 2.0 strategic plan. Tedd will play a key role in helping execute more acquisitions and development than we’ve ever done at Leeward.”
