Troy Shaheen

Communications Director


Troy leads CATF’s communications team, overseeing communications strategy, planning, and execution at the organizational level, as well as across its global programs and regional advocacy areas. He specializes in articulating the unique value and vision of innovative organizations — with a focus on those at the intersection of climate change, policy, financial markets, and technology.

Before joining CATF in 2021, Troy managed communications at the sustainability nonprofit Ceres. There, he helped launch the Ceres Accelerator for Sustainable Capital Markets and led its strategic communications efforts to push U.S. financial regulators, banks, and corporate boards to act on climate change as a systemic financial risk. He also led communications for the organization’s climate and energy team — leveraging the financial markets to accelerate the low-carbon transition across the electric power, transportation, oil and gas, and insurance sectors. In a previous role at Ceres, Troy managed digital media and email marketing, and served as the lead speechwriter and op-ed writer for the CEO and president.

Troy began his career in journalism — first as a freelance reporter in New England and New York, and then as a communications director for the New England Center for Investigative Reporting, an investigative newsroom based at WGBH and Boston University. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Kenyon College.
