Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition
The Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to save energy and promote the use of domestic fuels and advanced vehicle technologies in transportation.
Kerri Garvin is the Executive Director for the Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition, a nonprofit organization serving two-thirds of Indiana's public and private sector fleets in their deployment of alternative fuels and technologies.
As a public management and sustainability professional, Garvin has managed a town, a nonprofit organization, and numerous sustainability projects and programs. During her time with the City of Fort Wayne, she served as a Program Manager for energy and sustainability and the Executive Director for the Northeast Indiana Sustainable Business Council.
Trained and credentialed by the Envision sustainable infrastructure rating system, Garvin integrated the concepts into City Utility projects to help meet their sustainability and energy efficiency goals. As the Executive Director for the Northeast Indiana Sustainable Business Council, she provided training, certification, and assistance to area businesses using their Bright Green Business program.
While serving in the Public Information Office of Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry’s administration she successfully led the City’s efforts to be recognized for the third time as a National Civic League “All-America City”. In addition, she spearheaded the creation of the Mayor’s Youth Engagement Council, an all-teen volunteer council dedicated to service-learning, leadership and engagement in the Fort Wayne area. Garvin also served as a mayoral appointment to the City of Fort Wayne’s Sister Cities International program, facilitating potential economic development opportunities and cultural exchanges between Fort Wayne, Indiana and nation cities worldwide.
Garvin holds a Master’s in Public Affairs with a concentration on Public Management and a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Indiana University Fort Wayne. She also volunteers by serving on the Board of Directors for the Black Pine Animal Sanctuary.
