Jessie Schiavone is Project Canary's SVP of Sales & Operations. She is responsible for building and leading high performance teams to help energy companies measure and reduce GHG emissions on their systems. She believes the future power grid (and the future of our planet) will require proven, tech-enabled decarbonization – measured and verified impact, not estimates. She joined Project Canary to help utilities embrace the use of real time monitoring and leak detection in order to meet increasing demands from PUCs and legislators for improved environmental stewardship. She now leads the Sales and Operations teams for Project Canary's core business and looks to drive emissions reduction across the full natural gas supply chain, from well to gate station.

Before joining our team, Jessie spent 15 years in the gas and electric utility sector deploying hardware, software and analytics solutions to drive energy efficiency, demand response, customer engagement, and operational improvements for many of the largest utilities in the US. Now, as a seasoned startup executive, she has expertise in all major business areas - sales, marketing, operations, product, finance and customer success – and seriously enjoys the challenge of bringing order to chaos to scale good ideas.

Jessie holds a BS from the US Naval Academy, an MBA from Boston University, and an executive certificate from MIT in Artificial Intelligence & Business Strategy. She is also the executive sponsor for the Women of Project Canary and occasionally still flies planes with her former US Navy colleagues. She's a fierce, combat-decorated veteran and we're stoked to have her on our team. 💪
