Resume for Marvin Hudson 909-***-**** 909-***-****

A long-standing entrepreneur, passionate about financing energy

efficiency and alternative/renewable energy in the emerging green sector of our economy.

A licensed Real Estate Broker since the early 1990’s and in the Real Estate Lending and brokered financing industry for over twenty years, Marvin Hudson has gained valuable experience and widely applicable business skills over that period. Two years ago he began to focus on the up and coming energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) markets, with a passion to help create the financing vehicles to bring to the average consumer significantly more opportunities to make these types of improvements. Mr. Hudson believes employing EE and RE sources will: a) reduce our country’s dependency on fossil fuels; b) help improve our economy at local, regional, state, and national levels - giving us many jobs that cannot be exported; c) and improve the world in which we live, and over which we have a certain stewardship. He is looking to associate with a company that has a goal of expanding its reach into these energy efficiency and/or renewable energy markets.

Mr. Hudson has both presented and spoken at seminars, being fairly widely recognized in this Southern California Inland Empire region as one who knows about financing energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. This recognition may be demonstrated by a Google search of the name, Marvin Hudson.

To explain Viewpoint Green’s P.A.C.E. (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program, a version of an AB 811-type program, has met with, among others, the following:

Representatives (Jesse Valenzuela and James Dudley) of CA Congressional Representative Joe Baca

Ontario Mayor (Paul Leon)

San Bernardino Mayor (Pat Morris’) Chief of Staff (Jim Morris) and Mayoral Assistant (Casey Dailey)

Representative (Michael Townsend) of San Bernardino Cnty. Supervisor, Fifth District, Josie Gonzales

Director (Larry Grable) of the Inland Empire field office for CA Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

Met with San Bernardino County Tax Collector (Dick Larsen) and with Director (Emil Marzullo) of the Redevelopment Agency for the City of San Bernardino

March 2010 – Attended this year’s County City Conference, met with County Supervisors Neil Derry and Josie Gonzales, and Redlands City Councilmen Jerry Bean.

March 2010 – Attended the League of California Cities’ IE Division Reception and the CLC’s Planning Commission Conference.

February 2010 - Created and held an AB 811 Symposium attended by approx. 200 from both municipal government and private sector. Engaged as participants in this symposium: local City of Riverside Mayor Ron Loveridge, City Council members, City Manager, City Staff, Director from the University of California, Riverside, and various members from the private sector: law firm, commercial & residential solar contractor, and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers representative.

Summer 2009 - Met with the Assemblywoman of the 62nd District and her team to provide input for their vision of creating a fully sustainable community within the boundaries of her District.

May 2009 – Attended a California Energy Commission (CEC) workshop held in Diamond Bar that was designed to explore potential uses of stimulus funds for energy efficiency & renewable energy upgrades.

May 2009 –Attended the annual stakeholders meeting held in Ontario by The Alliance for Education. This meeting generally recaps the past year and refers to goals for the coming year. The purpose for attending was to learn which school districts, if any, had on the horizon regarding steps to be taken to reduce the energy usage on their respective campuses.

April 2009 – Attended a workshop held in Sacramento by the California Energy Commission, with the CPUC represented. This workshop was arranged to discuss how the ARRA 2009 stimulus funding might benefit some energy related projects, primarily those crafted to work under AB 811.

April 2009 – Attended a workshop hosted by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) in Diamond Bar, which was designed to inform local governments, elected officials, school districts and other regional stakeholders about funding opportunities in the federal economic stimulus legislation, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. This workshop focused on funding energy and environment related programs in the public sector.

April 2009 – Participated in the 2009 Redlands State of the City and Sustainable Business Expo. Promoted AB 811 to residents and other Expo participants to further the awareness of the opportunities.

March 2009 – Met with Peter Dobrovolny, Green Building Specialist, Green Building Program, and Amanda Eichel, both of the City of Seattle. Mr. Dobrovolny is in Planning and Development and shared a great deal about that city’s approach to move new development in the direction of sustainability. Ms. Eichel promotes the city’s educational and awareness program to great success. Seattle is recognized as one of America’s greenest cities - which was the reason for the choice to visit this city in particular - and its residents have early and quickly adapted to things such as substituting reusable grocery bags for plastic shopping bags and replacing plastic water bottles with recloseable glass water bottles.

February 2009 – Attended the RETECH (Renewable Energy Technology) Conference in Las Vegas. Met specifically with two participants with regard to their products: one a bio-waste manufacturer (i.e., converting used grease recovered from grease traps in restaurants to fuel) looking to locate a plant in Southern California; and the other a provider of structuring, analysis, and tracking renewable energy financing packages. Learned about the iCel 714, a lithium-ion battery capable of storing energy generated by renewable sources.

January 2009 – In the City of Palm Desert, met with the Director, Office of Energy Management, City of Palm Desert, Pat Conlon; Redlands Mayor Jon Harrison; and the Chair of the Redlands Climate Action Task Force, Jan Hudson. We discussed details of the Energy Independence Program established in the City of Palm Desert after that city, along with the City of Concord, pushed for the creation and passage of AB 811.

January 2009 – To better understand the desires and needs of local governments relating to moving toward sustainable communities, and to establish relationships within those local city governments whose agenda included this goal, I attended the League of Cities Inland Empire Division’s Dinner Meeting and interacted with many local City Council members and a few Mayors. Another benefit derived from establishing these relationships was the opportunity to share in the review of the ARRA 2009 City Funding Book to identify where economic stimulus funding was being directed.

December 2008 to March 2009 – compiled research and created a White Paper on the need for, and the local, regional, and national benefits derived from, creating more sustainable communities.

Later, Mr. Marshall and Mr. Hudson reviewed the then more-immediate goals of the EDA: to identify within San Bernardino and Riverside Counties “shovel-ready” projects in the $5 to $10 million range so as to allow the incoming administration to immediately begin investing in local economies, creating jobs. Mr. Hudson created an outline for, and presented it to, the City of Redlands.

December 2008 – Attended a Build It Green (BIG) seminar along with local municipal employees in the Building & Safety, Planning, and Inspection Departments. Also in attendance were several City Managers. Focus was on programs for municipalities to consider implementing such as the upcoming Green Building Code.
