Sungevity is excited to announce our new Chief Marketing Officer – Patrick Crane.

Patrick comes to us from LinkedIn via his very own solar roof. That’s right, Patrick was a Sungevity customer before he was an employee.

Today he gets to work developing innovative ways to deepen Sungevity’s relationships with its customers, as well as the solar relationships our customers have within their own networks.

In other words, Patrick is creating a Solar Social Network for us.

“When you become a Sungevity customer, like I did, you also become an ambassador for solar energy, and an active advocate for Sungevity’s service,” Patrick says. “As Sungevity continues to grow, its customers will become part of a passionate online community, sharing how much money they save and how much CO2 they continually suck out of the air. It’s all about growing the network through word-of-mouth from current users.”

Those are just a few of the ideas Patrick is working on – all of which promise to make going solar with Sungevity even easier and cooler.
