The firm provides strategic counsel to clients around the world. Browner is also a principal of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm.
‘APX's ability to attract such well-respected leaders as Carol to our board underscores the trusted position we have established in supporting the rapidly developing environmental commodities markets,’ says Brian Storms, APX's chairman and CEO. ‘Her extensive experience and global perspective will be a tremendous asset to APX as we look to enhance our position as the leading environmental market infrastructure provider.’
From 1993 to 2001, Browner served as administrator of the EPA where she is credited for championing common sense, cost-effective solutions to environmental and public-health challenges. During her tenure as EPA administrator, Browner enacted the strongest-ever national air pollution standards and developed the Brownfields program.
