Erik Zech has stepped down as Real Goods Solar’s CFO, effective end of March 2012. Zech’s decision followed Real Goods Solar’s decision to centralize its finance and accounting departments at the company’s corporate centre in Louisville.
He is succeeded by John Coletta who has held the role of CFO for 14 years, including 10 years as CFO for the Rock Bottom restaurant chain.
Bill Yearsley, Real Goods Solar’s CEO, commented on Coletta’s appointment: “With the pace of growth we are experiencing at Real Goods Solar, continuing to develop and institutionalize internal accounting and finance functions is critical to supporting our rapidly changing business. John brings a depth of experience that will be critical to meeting these demands.”
