Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, D-N.Y., has appointed the Natural Resources Defense Council’s (NRDC) Dale Bryk deputy secretary for energy and environment.
For more than 20 years, Bryk has played pivotal roles in NRDC’s climate and clean energy team, the group says.
“Governor Cuomo could not have made a stronger choice in appointing Dale Bryk deputy secretary for energy and environment,” says Kit Kennedy, senior director of climate and clean energy at NRDC. “At a time when so much is at stake and state leadership critical, we need visionary climate champions like Dale more than ever.”
According to the governor’s office, throughout her 21 years at NRDC, Bryk has worked to develop and implement climate, energy efficiency, renewable energy and clean transportation policies. From 2002 to 2010, she also taught the Environmental Law Clinic at Yale Law School. Before joining NRDC, she practiced corporate law in New York. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Colgate University, a master’s from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
