Founder & CEO
Diane founded Waypoint with one desire, transform the way commercial buildings access and use information. She is passionate about building a company that makes a meaningful difference.
Johnathon oversees the design and implementation of Waypoint’s programs out West, collaborating closely with CRE and utility partners to increase building performance. In a former life, he spent his days working with regulators and utilities to accelerate the adoption of renewables. During the weekend, you’ll usually find him and his dog Colby somewhere in the mountains.
Jenn does whatever it takes to help commercial buildings access financial incentives for energy-saving projects. With 10 years of working in energy efficiency under her belt, she takes a “boots on the ground” approach to optimize the built environment. She’s known for getting extra crafty in her workshop and hosting board game nights with friends.
Brian uses his engineering background and eye for analytics to help commercial real estate partners translate building performance into energy savings. He has a knack for finding projects that reduce NOI, increase asset value, and align with energy efficiency incentive programs. In his free time, Brian can be found at his neighborhood bar for weekly trivia or cheering on the Chicago Blackhawks.
Laura facilitates financial incentive programs for energy efficiency projects in existing commercial buildings and new construction projects. Before landing at Waypoint, she earned a degree in Environmental & Urban Studies and worked in corporate sustainability and recruiting. You can usually find her eating around Chicago, testing new recipes in her kitchen, and reading.
Amy deploys our New Construction program in Portland, OR. She works with a variety of decision-makers to ensure the implementation of energy efficient measures, helping them access financial incentives in the region. Prior to joining the Waypoint team, she worked in sustainability programs for government and utility clients across the West Coast. Outside of work, she is continually exploring for a new trail, a new beer, or a new adventure!
Nikki relies on her love of communication and networking to engage with folks in the government sector, planning for and implementing energy efficiency measures. She works with stakeholders in different local, state, and federal agencies, helping prioritize and manage project timelines. Nikki loves spending time with her family, specifically playing board and card games (Cribbage!), traveling, and finding foods her 4-year-old will eat.
Joe works to bring financial incentives to clients in the large office sector for the Existing Building Program. He uses his property and project management background, along with his passion for conservation, to assist clients in the upgrade process. Outside of work Joe loves cooking, playing and listening to music, and traveling with his wife.
