Our Team

The Sealed Team is a group of passionate nerds who are obsessed with making home comfort as easy as pie.

Andy Frank, Founder & CEO

Andy is an experienced energy efficiency entrepreneur, named a top 10 New York Young Energy Leader by Breaking Energy. Andy co-founded Efficiency 2.0, an energy efficiency software start-up that helped utilities engage and reward their residential customers, which was sold to C3 in 2012. Andy took the company from pre-revenue to multi-million dollar deals with some of the largest investor owned utilities. Proving all classical economists wrong, he was inspired to start Sealed when he literally found $100 lying on a sidewalk.

Andrew Mccarthy, DIRECTOR OF operations

Andrew comes to Sealed from an agricultural nonprofit in Tanzania and Teach for America in New Orleans. Happy to be back home in New York, he can typically be found impersonating Bruce Springsteen or kvetching about the Mets, regardless of whether he's at work.

 Ali Adler Sealed Headshot

ALI Adler, DIRECTOR OF partnerships

Ali previously led the Northeast Clean Energy Council’s entrepreneurship programs. After drinking startup kool-aid for years, she took the plunge at Sealed leading partnerships and marketing. When she's not compulsively networking, you'll spot her befriending every dog in New York City.

 Dan Hochman

DAN HOCHMAN, DIRECTOR OF Sales

Dan came to Sealed after earning his M.S. in Energy Science, Technology and Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. Before grad school, he worked on energy issues at economic development organizations and think tanks. When Dan isn't thinking about energy, he is...oh who are we kidding, he's always thinking about energy.

Patrick Mcnamara, DIRECTOR OF Analytics

Patrick previously worked at Efficiency 2.0, building statistical models to measure and predict energy savings. Patrick has somehow created nerdy obsessions around both beer and football, neither of which have helped his beloved Kansas City Chiefs.

 Matt Soble Sealed Headshot

Matt soble, Senior homeadvance specialist

Matt studied Architecture and Entrepreneurship at Tufts University, and has spent two years at Sealed helping hundreds of homeowners as an energy advisor. Matt will talk your ear off about how awesome his hometown of Chicago is until you beg him to stop. He loves working at Sealed because, as he puts it, “I’m saving the world: one attic at a time.”

Matt Polacek, HomeAdvance Specialist

Matt graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in Football… and Environmental Sciences. Despite his intimidating 6'5" height, he's managed to crawl into hundreds of degrading attics, and he is excited to help you upgrade yours. Outside of work, he's working on perfecting his homemade taco game.

Jay Gray, HomeAdvance Specialist

 Jonah Eidman Sealed Headshot

Jonah Eidman, Operations Manager

Jonah comes to Sealed from Johns Hopkins University, where he studied Mechanical Engineering. After many frigid nights in his poorly sealed Baltimore row house, destiny brought him to New York to help others avoid the same shivering fate. Jonah has a healthy passion for hiking and an unhealthy passion for the Mets.

Alex Owen, finance and operations associate

Alex joined Sealed after a stint in Investment Banking at Piper Jaffray and Cantor Fitzgerald. He graduated from Washington and Lee University with a B.S. in Business Administration, and is a self-proclaimed Thai food enthusiast. Somehow he got a job in New York as a diehard Patriot’s fan.

Melissa comes to Sealed from a diverse background - part customer service, part farmer, part Anthropology. Outside of work she is routinely trying out restaurants, and enjoying musicals on Broadway-often twice.
