Meet David Stader

In response to the global climate change crisis, Jacobs is on a mission to support our clients with decarbonizing their operations and reinforcing their resilience. Transitioning to various forms of green energy is the most important way to address the root cause of the climate crisis.

David Stader’s unique combination of global citizenship, experience in executive-level strategy, sales and delivery roles and the ability to lead a portfolio of strategic activities serves him well as our Global Market Director for Energy Transition. He is implementing Jacobs’ global energy transition strategy that aims to support the global evolution from fossil-based systems of energy production and consumption to deliver clean and sustainable energy.

“The biggest challenge with decarbonization is the need for huge amounts of investment and innovation in a way that can achieve our goals, and it requires collaboration and synergy at a scale we haven’t seen before. It’s truly the test of our generation.”
