Edie Chang chosen as new ARB Deputy Executive Officer

Chang brings 20 years of experience at ARB; will oversee climate
change programs, stationary source division, administration and
information services

SACRAMENTO — Edie Chang has been named Deputy Executive Officer,
ARB Executive Officer Richard Corey has announced. As Deputy,
Chang will oversee the Stationary Source Division, Administrative
Services Division and the Office of Information Services.

A 20-year veteran of ARB, Chang replaces Corey, who was recently
appointed to the Board’s top job of Executive Officer.
Chang has played an important role in a number of high-priority
air quality and climate change programs. Most recently, in her
role as assistant chief of the Stationary Source Division, Chang
was responsible for the development and implementation of
California’s pioneering plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
She was also involved at every stage of development of the 2008
Scoping Plan itself, and the subsequent implementation of
California’s greenhouse gas cap-and-trade regulation.

“Edie has distinguished herself as a creative thinker with
exceptional communication and organization skills. She has a
strong track record of working with different teams and a wide
range of stakeholders to successfully take on the Board’s most
challenging projects,” said Corey. “Her education, experience and
leadership make her ideally suited for this new role.”

Prior to overseeing ARB’s climate change program, Chang managed
the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment diesel
incentive program. She made substantial contributions on the
early development of the zero-emission vehicle program, and
policies related to incentives and the role they play in securing
early emission reductions. She also worked with local air
districts on air quality planning to support State Implementation

In her new role, Chang will oversee implementation of the Board’s
stationary source and fuels and climate change programs,
including the cap-and-trade program, air toxics program, low
carbon fuel standard, strategies to reduce emissions from freight
transport, and development of the 2013 update to the climate
change Scoping Plan.
Chang holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in
mechanical engineering from the University of California,
Berkeley, and University of California, Irvine, respectively.
