SPOWER ANNOUNCES PLANS TO EXPAND SENIOR MANAGEMENT
CFO, J.I. “Chip” Everest, promoted to President to focus on domestic and international growth initiatives
sPower (Sustainable Power Group), a leading renewable energy provider, today announced the promotion of current CFO, J.I. “Chip” Everest, to President.
sPower’s rapid growth (following its merger with Fir Tree Partners-backed Silverado Power) includes an operating portfolio of more than 130 solar assets and greater than a gigawatt between construction and pipeline. Everest’s ability to create relationships with tax equity, financial and strategic partners led to a number of successes, including sPower’s recent crossing of the Atlantic to enter the UK renewables industry.
“To maintain sPower’s growth trajectory and to deliver against our most important initiatives, we are expanding sPower’s senior management ranks,” said Ryan Creamer, sPower CEO. “In his new role, Chip will spearhead a number of development objectives domestically and abroad.”
Everest will lead sPower’s immediate search for a replacement CFO.
