CMC’s 23 energy efficiency programs represent utility clients across six states, from Maryland to Massachusetts, and include the country’s #1 ranked energy efficiency program by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and the top-rated utility in the east region for customer satisfaction by J.D. Power. Based in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, CMC Energy Services has offices in Cranbury, New Jersey, Yalesville, Connecticut, and Westborough, Massachusetts. CMC employs nearly 200 experienced energy professionals and quality control technicians company-wide holding over 150 technical certifications and BPI certifications.
A Six Sigma Green Belt and former supply chain analyst from PSEG Services Corporation, Banihani joined CMC in 2011. She has a bachelor’s of science in organizational management from Thomas Edison State University and completed the Wharton School of Business’s Executive Development Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
Banihani says CMC is the right fit for her professionally because she admires the company’s history of being women-owned and operated as well as its strong innovative spirit.
“The fact that we’re so nimble and flexible is a strength utility companies see in CMC,” notes Banihani. “Over the years we’ve expanded and grown our team of program managers and technical staff that utilities count on to advise them on best practices, industry trends, and program design.”
According to CMC President and CEO Eileen McGinnis, CMC is fortunate to have someone as talented as Banihani. “Since she arrived at CMC, Leila has assumed more and more responsibility and has handled all of her many responsibilities with skill and grace. The promotion is an acknowledgment of her many contributions to CMC, and my belief, as well as CMC owner Mimi Ikle-Khlasa’s that Leila will make significant contributions to the company in the years to come.”
Banihani enjoys techy things and understanding how things work, and knew at a young age that she’d work in operations. She’s created an environment at CMC that celebrates small wins to get to big goals. “We spend so much of our day together at work, more time than our family. I want people to enjoy being at work and enjoy being part of something bigger.”
