Zach Scheel, P.E.
Zach joined the military a week after September 11th. He filled out a Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) application and enrolled at Duke University to study mechanical engineering. At the height of the Arab Spring, Zach was stationed in Djibouti, Africa, managing large-scale military construction projects. His other billets include serving as the Resident Officer in Charge of Construction and Assistant Public Works Officer at the Naval Station in Everett, WA.
After completing his military service, Zach enrolled in Stanford’s Graduate School of Business where he interned with Bechtel as an Assistant Area Superintendent at the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, and as a Project Controls Engineer at a copper concentrator in the Atacama Desert of Northern Chile.
Drew’s family has a rich military background. His father and older brother both served in the Air Force and Drew knew that he, too, wanted to serve his country. While an undergrad at Notre Dame, Drew enrolled in ROTC and upon graduation was commissioned into the Navy as a Nuclear Submarine Officer. He spent over six years with the Navy, stationed primarily in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and deployed to locations across Southeast Asia. After his service was complete, Drew enrolled in Stanford’s Graduate School of Business to pursue a joint MBA/MPP degree program with a focus on energy systems and infrastructure. He interned at a few energy companies while in school, and shortly after graduating started the renewable energy company, Valhalla Energia, in Chile with two classmates.
