CLASP seeks a Senior Director/Chief to lead its Market Development programs for appliances, in on-, off-, and weak-grid contexts. The principle area of focus will be CLASP’s clean energy access portfolio, which aims to accelerate the deployment of high quality, energy-efficient products in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and beyond. CLASP’s energy access portfolio includes the Efficiency for Access Coalition, the Low Energy Inclusive Appliances Program, the Global LEAP Awards, and Lighting Global Quality Assurance, among other initiatives. A secondary focus will be expanding CLASP’s market development work to on- and weak-grid contexts.


The Senior Director/Chief will be responsible for leading CLASP’s growing Market Development team based in Washington, DC, India, and – in collaboration with CLASP’s East Africa Director – Nairobi. They will work collaboratively with CLASP team members in the United States, Kenya, India, Europe, and elsewhere, along with our wide network of international partners and program stakeholders. They will develop and nurture partnerships with stakeholders around the world, including funders, program implementers, appliance manufacturers, distributors, users, and other NGOs. They will contribute to overall organizational direction and strategy, and in particular lead the strategic direction of CLASP’s energy access portfolio and broader suite of market development initiatives.


The ideal candidate will have an extraordinary capacity for program strategy, development, execution and administration, as well as leading a high performing team, deep expertise on energy efficiency, clean energy markets and on- and off- grid policy dynamics, world class collaboration and communication skills, a commitment to impacts and results, entrepreneurialism, and a sense of humor.
