SPG Solar has named Ted Walsh as its VP of business development. In his new role, Walsh, who has been with the company since 2006, will be responsible for overseeing SPG’s sales activities, partner opportunities, and strategic growth.
Walsh has been a top-producing sales representative and has managed sales teams to tremendous growth during his tenure at SPG.
He has implemented successful sales processes and led the Novato, Ca-based company’s sales efforts on many of its most notable projects: the “Floatovoltaics” systems at Far Niente and Gundlach Bundschu wineries, the largest Solyndra CIGS thin-film system in the United States to date at Livermore Cinemas; and multimegawatt systems for the Irvine Unified School District and Northern California Power Agency.
Walsh holds a degree in economics and managerial accounting from the University of Rochester, NY, and a BS in natural sciences–chemistry from the University of South Florida.
“Ted’s passion for environmental stewardship, responsible sales ethics, and competitive leadership has helped SPG Solar sustain high growth and emerge as one of the most successful solar integrators in the United States,” says Thomas Rooney, CEO of SPG Solar. “He combines a high level of integrity, customer perspective and sales management experience with expertise in project finance and renewable energy.”
“SPG Solar is incredibly well-positioned for growth as a national leader in the photovoltaics industry,” says Walsh. “I am proud to be part of the remarkable team at SPG Solar. We’ve developed many of the most innovative solar solutions on the market, deliver premium products and services at very competitive prices, and above all else, we stand behind our commitments to our clients.”
