Bonnie Frye Hemphill Joins UMC as Director, Policy & Partnerships

Deepening public affairs and clean energy expertise to benefit clients and the environment.

Bonnie Frye Hemphill has recently joined UMC to provide strategic policy leadership on the next generation of the built environment, as well as expertise in partnership development and external communications. She will also put to work her clean-economy expertise for UMC. 

“We are excited to have Bonnie join us at UMC,” said Steve Brooks, VP Business Development. “Bringing her onto our team bolsters our focus and investment in supporting deep efficiency goals and strengthens our depth to consult clients on ways to integrate clean technologies into their infrastructure.”

Previous to UMC, Hemphill was opening new markets for solar in the northwest. Hemphill’s career started at the northwest nonprofit Climate Solutions and has also included the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, the White House Council on Environmental Quality, and the Environmental & Energy Technology Council of Maine.

Hemphill holds a BA from Middlebury College and a masters from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. When she isn’t accelerating the business of commercial energy efficiency, she’s outside pursuing trails with friends, dogs, and her adventurous toddler.

About UMC
UMC helps clients solve the complex challenges of built environments and their systems. Originating 100 years ago to serve the Pacific Northwest as a mechanical contractor, the firm has added a vast range of comprehensive, integrated services in facility performance and maintenance, energy and environment, building automation, and manufacturing. UMC helps clients and partners plan, build, and manage their buildings, facilities or construction projects. As these programs present inherent technical and logistical complexity, UMC rises to the challenge of removing worry, delay, angst, and confusion, so their clients and partners can get back to focusing on what they do best.
