Chris Lynch has been named director of the Business Environmental Program at the University of Nevada, Reno College of Business and the Nevada Small Business Development Center.
Lynch, an environmental attorney, previously managed a similar program for 13 years at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He also has worked as a senior fellow at Wharton for the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership and has served as an advisor to organizations such as the Environmental Defense Fund and the Pew Center on Global Climate Change.
He served four terms on the Pennsylvania Small Business Environmental Compliance Advisory Committee by three governors.
The unanimous approvals Wednesday came despite state leaders promising to tighten up requirements for Nevada’s tax abatements and incentives for future companies.
