San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
SmartWatt Energy, Inc., a leading nationwide provider of turnkey energy-efficiency solutions for commercial, industrial government and utility customers, is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in San Diego, CA. Kevin Hunt, recently hired as a Project Development Engineer, opened the San Diego office after a training period in SmartWatt Energy’s Northern California office in Roseville. He has been developing energy-efficiency projects in Southern California for the past 4 years.
Rising energy costs and today’s fragile economy have increased the demand for energy-efficiency solutions, allowing SmartWatt Energy to further invest in hiring and expansion. The number of cold storage LED lighting retrofit projects and comprehensive energy efficiency projects for the food processing industry on the West Coast have grown substantially in 2011, necessitating the geographic expansion. The San Diego office will be SmartWatt Energy’s eighth office, the second on the West Coast.
“Kevin is a great addition to our West Coast team,” said Ben Stewart, Vice President of West Coast Operations for SmartWatt Energy. “He’s a proven sales leader in the energy-efficiency industry and Southern California market, with extensive National Accounts experience.”
Kevin Hunt worked as a Senior Account Executive in a national turnkey energy company’s Western Region for the past 4 years. He earned Salesman of the Year award in 2009 and was on track for a repeat in 2011. While there, Kevin was responsible for bringing in major National Accounts in the health care field. In addition to his business development responsibilities, he designed and presented energy-efficiency projects. Prior to that position, Kevin was a Junior Account Executive for Clear Channel Radio in San Diego and an Account Executive for CBS Radio Broadcasting in Cincinnati, OH. He studied Communications at the University of Cincinnati. Kevin is overseeing the initial development and selection of staff for the San Diego office and will be responsible for Project Development in the region.
