Jonathan (Jed) Dorsheimer is Global Head of Energy & Sustainability at William Blair, a middle market global investment bank.  Jed is also a founding member of BPEI.

This unique approach has led to identification of several secular trends including smartphones, LEDs, solar PVs, and the broader trend of electrification. Jed has advised the United States Department of Energy, under the 44th President, Barack Hussein Obama, and held Executive Leadership roles in at Acuity Brands, a fortune 500 Company.

Dr. Murphy has also served as an advisor for the environmental non-governmental organization (NGO), the Alaskan Wilderness League, as an energy policy expert. He has also been published on various topics related broadly to energy, economics and the environment in other outlets, such as The Hill, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and MarketWatch, amongst others.
