Our Team

Managing Partners

Three industry executives – Tom Kalup, Mike Salmon and Enzo Zoratto – recognized the growing need of owners to decarbonize and reposition their generation and infrastructure assets and founded DECARB to specifically address that need. As recognized experts, each with over 30 years of experience, they have led significant and well-known companies in the fields of power generation, environmental management, engineering and construction, and project finance in the United States and internationally. They are known for their ability to solve complex problems by applying rational and sometimes contrarian strategies working within all levels of owner organizations to create value.
