Prior to SHAPE, he capped off 13 years at General Electric (GE) by serving as Executive in Residence at GE Ventures and leading investments in early-stage energy and lighting startups. Prescott launched his career at GE shortly after business school, beginning as a member of the company’s experienced commercial leadership development program before becoming product manager of the Signaling Business Unit. In this role, he created and implemented an integrated rail yard offering. Subsequently, he served as General Manager of the company’s Drivetrain Technologies Business. Under his leadership, the Unit developed and executed a growth strategy that doubled revenue. Following this post, Prescott was appointed President and General Manager of GE Energy Storage, where he led a launch team in establishing a standalone energy storage business that grew into a global entity with manufacturing plants in the U.S. and the U.K.
Preceding GE, Prescott was a marketing manager at Baxter Healthcare Corporation. He holds a BA in Economics from Yale University and an MBA in Accounting, Management & Strategy, and Marketing from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
