Drew Warshaw is the chief operating officer (COO) of Enterprise Community Partners. As COO, Drew leads operations across all of Enterprise’s divisions and capabilities, and oversees the implementation of Enterprise’s five-year strategic plan.
Drew’s career spans both private and public sectors where he has led large, complex, mission-driven organizations, helping to build one of the country’s largest renewable energy businesses and spearhead one of the nation’s most important turnarounds.
Prior to joining Enterprise, Drew helped build and lead Clearway Energy Group, among the largest renewable energy companies in the United States. At Clearway, he launched and managed the company’s Community Solar business, which deployed more than $1 billion in capital to become the industry leader in developing, financing and operating such renewable energy projects. Before Clearway, he helped launch the Renewables division of NRG Energy, Inc., a Fortune 250 company, a division which was later acquired and reorganized as Clearway.
Prior to Clearway, Drew served in several public sector roles, first at the think tank, Center for American Progress, then in a gubernatorial administration as assistant secretary to the Governor of New York.
Most recently, Drew was chief of staff at The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, where he helped manage the second-largest transportation agency in the country, with 7,000 employees, a police department, an annual budget of $7 billion and a long-term capital plan of $30 billion. While at The Port Authority, Drew was pivotal in the turnaround of the World Trade Center rebuilding, creating a process and roadmap to get the project back on track. For his central role, Drew was praised by New York magazine as a “wunderkind” and Crain’s New York Business named him one of its youngest “40 Under 40” honorees.
Drew graduated with a BA from Cornell University and an MBA from Columbia Business School. A lifelong New Yorker, Drew serves on the Board of Directors of Union Settlement, one of New York City’s oldest nonprofit service providers, serving more than 10,000 residents in East Harlem. He lives in New York City with his wife and two sons.
