TAG Industries – Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Consultant, EES
Before completing his Entrepreneurship degree at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga in 2015, Owen had already co-started his first company in the environmentally conscious market. Currently, Owen is a short-term cost distribution analyst working in Ethiopia, for EzyLife, a for-profit social impact venture that tests high efficient wood cooking stoves.
Owen is a native to Chattanooga and grew up on Lookout Mountain which he calls home. When he’s home, Owen enjoys the outdoors and spends most of his time relaxing in downtown Chattanooga, the Tennessee River Gorge or along Lookout Mountain. Wherever he goes you can guarantee he is bragging about his scenic city and the Chattanooga Football Club. He enjoys camping, fly fishing, hunting, and even hopes to jump off the mountain… on a hang glider.
The Lookout Mountain Conservancy is different from any other land conservancy in town due to its partnership with The Howard School. In the future, Owen hopes to offer foreign community development opportunities to interested Howard interns. He believes in the importance of training and equipping these future leaders.
