With a strong belief that climate change and sustainability need business sector support – and present strong business opportunities – Peter Zahn co-founded the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce and served as its initial Chairman and CEO. Zahn has worked in numerous business, legal and non-profit capacities, everything from a sole legal practitioner and solo entrepreneur, to an attorney at a 400 lawyer Wall Street firm, CEO of a tech company, and head of a foundation. He was elected to the City Council of Solana Beach, California in November 2012.
Zahn crossed over more firmly into the non-profit arena in January 2013, running the Moxie Foundation in San Diego, California. He spends most of his time promoting entrepreneurship, education reform, social innovation, and environmental sustainability. He has kept a hand in the legal world, advising the Blumberg Law Group, a business transaction and general litigation firm in Solana Beach, California.
Zahn is a member of the Bar of California, New York, and New Jersey.
