Everblue Hires New Project Coordinator

Everblue hired a new project coordinator to address the growing demand for sustainability training.


Everblue hired a new project coordinator to address the growing demand for green training. Angelica Fialo, a University of North Carolina at Charlotte graduate, will take over as the new project coordinator at the Huntersville, N.C. office.

Fialo started as an intern with Everblue in January 2012, working with the program operations team. She was hired on as a full-time employee following her graduation. As a project coordinator, Fialo will assist with the Building Performance Institute Quality Assurance (BPI QA) program and will help the program operations team by coordinating the logistics of Everblue’s training courses.

“Angelica is a great asset to our team,” said Bethany Lockerbie, Everblue’s BPI program manager. “She was a very hard-working intern, which is why she was hired for this position.”

On January 5, 2012, Larry Zarker, the Building Performance Institute’s CEO, announced that Everblue would become one of three organizations to provide quality assurance services nationally to BPI’s Accredited Contractor Network. The purpose of the quality assurance program is to ensure that accredited contractors adhere to the BPI Standards and Accreditation requirements.

Everblue, in particular, will be responsible for delivering QA services to accredited contractors in the following states: Alabama, California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

As an intern, Fialo built Everblue’s quality assurance program from the ground up. She contacted the contractors residing in Everblue’s approved regions for QA services and scheduled their required Quality Management Introduction (QMI) office visits. Going forward, Fialo will assist John Costello, Everblue’s BPI quality assurance manager, to oversee future development of the BPI Accreditation Program.

“My goal was to find a position that allowed me to use my background in environmental planning and appeal to my interests,” said Fialo. “I’m glad that I get to utilize my expertise [at Everblue].”

Everblue is the leader in sustainability training, and the need for a sustainable workforce is continuing to increase. More companies are looking to Everblue for their green training.
