DES MOINES, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Clean energy consulting, auditing, and advisory firm, EcoEngineers, has announced the addition of Laith Amin to the executive team as vice president, growth and strategic development. Amin brings more than 20 years of international experience driving transformation and growth through business development, account management, sales, and strategy with an emphasis on decarbonization.

In a previous role as global head of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCUS) at DNV, he built a high-growth global CCUS venture, also addressing carbon dioxide removal (CDR), and bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) opportunity. Previously, at Worley’s Digital Unit, he led the products and technology group globally, covering areas such as methane emissions reduction and digital transformation.
“The industry is in an exciting phase of transformation,” said Amin. “I’m eager to share my expertise to help Eco’s clients accelerate the realization of their ESG goals. Step change in decarbonization is possible when we work together, and believe that no other goal could be more important.”
With a career marked by outstanding financial results and leadership, Amin’s experience aligns with Eco’s own ambitious growth goals, and his proven track record in business development and innovation combined with key C-level relationships uniquely position him to spearhead initiatives that will strengthen Eco’s standing as a leader in the energy transition.
