Anntonette is motivated by demonstrating how projects that are good for the climate and for developing economies can also make money for private investors. Her passion is to open the doors of bankable investment to developing economies by creating clean energy projects that actually perform – not mere demonstration projects, but projects that can stand alone as world class investments. Anntonette is a juris doctor with over 25 years of experience in sustainable development. She led a publicly traded company’s international energy program’s growth from less than $10M annually in revenue in 2006 to over $350M annually by 2009.

Her ability to get people to rally around a common goal is a valuable skill.

Now she is using these same talents to build Redfeather’s project portfolios and grow the business throughout the Caribbean. Maz has a passionate approach to her work that always focuses on improving the environment. It is more than a job to her; her life’s ambition is to help communities who have been affected by environmental challenges.
