Eric Miller named executive director of Office of Climate Action and the Green Economy

Eric Miller has been named as the executive director of the Governor’s Office of Climate Action and the Green Economy, with policy adviser Preethy Thangaraj now serving as deputy director. Miller’s appointment follows the departure of Catherine Klinger.

“I am thrilled to announce Eric Miller as our new executive director of the Office of Climate Action and the Green Economy,” Gov. Phil Murphy said. “Eric is a passionate advocate who has initiated high-impact policies across clean energy, building electrification and transportation. I am confident in Eric’s leadership, and I want to thank outgoing Executive Director Catherine Klinger for her notable contributions to this team and to the state.

“Preethy has served this administration and the people of New Jersey by supporting clean energy policies, addressing sustainability and helping to combat the climate crisis.”

In his new role, Miller will oversee the environment and energy policy portfolio, leading work on the governor’s clean energy, environmental justice and climate resiliency agenda, among other key initiatives.

Previously, Miller served as the New Jersey energy policy director for the Natural Resources Defense Council, where he worked to develop and advance clean energy, buildings and transportation policy in the state of New Jersey.
