Jeffers will be responsible for developing and implementing SunModo’s distribution channels and sales strategies in California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Colorado; helping the business to achieve further success in the fast-growing solar industry.
“We’re excited to have John join our sales team during a period of significant growth and innovation,” says Director of Sales at SunModo Sergio Lira. “With his help, we will be able to take even better care of these important customers.”
John previously served with the US Army 82nd Airborne Division and attended business classes at UCLA’s Anderson School. John took to sales like a fish to water, serving in many different capacities until finding his calling in solar. In solar, John’s experience includes kitchen table sales, renewable finance and wholesale business sales.
“We have a game-changing product line that I’m very eager to share. I look forward to reconnecting with all my friends in the solar business and making many more,” Jeffers stated.
Warpinski will be responsible for developing and implementing SunModo’s distribution channels and sales strategies in Midwest region.
“Al brings a wealth of knowledge and sales experience to the team,” Lira says. “We see significant potential for our business in the Midwest region, where the solar industry has been growing exponentially. I am confident that he will excel in his role to better serve the growing needs of our customers.
He has served in many roles throughout his career, including inside sales, distribution, and on the manufacturing side, giving him a unique understanding of all aspects of the sale.
“I’ve been looking to get into the Solar Industry for a long time,” Warpinski says. “After meeting with Sergio Lira and Steve Mumma, I realized this opportunity was too good to pass up.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
