Concentrated photovoltaics systems company Soliant Energy has brought Ben Jamison on board as its new VP of marketing. Jamison, who will report to chairman/CEO Terry Bailey, is a seasoned marketing executive with more than three decades of experience with leading companies in dynamic and growth markets. He will be responsible for all marketing-related activities at the Monrovia, Ca-based CPV firm, including product management and field applications.
Most recently, Jamison was VP of sales at Savant Systems, a provider of advanced consumer electronics systems for residential and commercial customers. In this role, he spearheaded efforts to build comarketing agreements with over 35 top manufacturers and established an international dealer/distributor network of over 300 participants, increasing revenue by more than 250% in 2009.
Before joining Savant, he was VP of sales and marketing for Visionware, Inc.. He has also held senior marketing and sales roles at Runco International, Solus Micro Technologies and NEC Technologies.
“As we move through our pilot stage and begin to aggressively build out our customer base, marketing takes on a front and center role at Soliant,” said Bailey. “Ben’s track record speaks for itself; his demonstrated ability to think strategically coupled with his results-oriented program creation and execution is a great fit for our needs.”
“Soliant presents one of those rare combinations of right company with the right product at just the right time,” said Jamison. “I’m thrilled with this opportunity to join Terry and the team and to help Soliant reach its full potential as a leading provider of high-efficiency, concentrated solar for commercial rooftops around the world.”
