CEO and Founder
IB Environmental


Stacey Isaac Berahzer, founder of IB Environmental, has spent more than 15 years in the environmental field, most of it immersed in water resource management as a senior project director with the Environmental Finance Center at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

As a passionate proponent of clean, affordable water who is deeply connected to work in the water industry, she’s uniquely qualified to help funders, nonprofits, utility companies, and others overcome the constant challenges related to funding and managing these projects.

Stacey has worked on water policy at the national level with groups such as the American Water Works Association, on watershed management with the Chattooga Conservancy, and with a group of Georgia-based funding agencies who specialize in water management projects, among many others.

Stacey’s passion for environmental work led her to earn a degree in Environmental Science from North Carolina Central University and a Master of Public Administration from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is chair of the board of directors for the Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership and teaches in the Georgia Association of Water Professionals Leadership Academy.
