Fedrizzi begins a long goodbye, announcing his departure from @usgbc next year. @rickfedrizzi

One of the first major changes he ushered in was allowing trade associations to become members , in concert with a greater role for regional chapters of USGBC. Greenbuild grew from a fledgling trade show and in-crowd powow to a massive international conference—and then was sold to Hanley Wood in 2013. In 2007, the group spun off the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI)—which recently changed its name to Green Business Certification Inc. to reflect its own rapid expansion. Fedrizzi will also step down as CEO of GBCI. In keeping with his focus on expanding LEED’s international scope, Fedrizzi also served briefly as CEO of the World Green Building Council before passing the torch to Terri Wills.
