Energy Financing Expert Micah Myers and Will Sanchez, CPA, Join Clean Power Finance Executive Team

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - Clean Power Finance, a leading provider of residential financing and solar sales and system design tools, today announced the appointment of two new executive team members: Micah Myers as senior vice president of business development and program management, and Will Sanchez as vice president, corporate controller. Both bring significant energy and financial expertise, further establishing Clean Power Finance's management team as one of the strongest in the industry.

"Micah Myers and Will Sanchez are excellent additions to our executive staff. Micah has led teams in senior military operational roles for a decade, has worked in both small and large organizations and has experience in renewable energy, software and finance. His track record of growing venture-backed companies and previous experience with our company make him a valuable asset to the team," said Nat Kreamer, CEO of Clean Power Finance. "Will is the ideal candidate to develop and scale a successful accounting and finance team with a strong foundation in efficiency, effectiveness and integrity that will support our continued growth."

Micah Myers joins Clean Power Finance as senior vice president of business development and program management after having served as the company's first product manager in 2007. Prior to joining again this year as a full-time team member, Myers led the investment in Clean Power Finance as a principal at Claremont Creek Ventures, where he focused on early-stage alternative energy and energy efficiency technology companies. While at Claremont, he also served as a board observer with Alphabet Energy and Sentilla Corporation. Myers is a Lieutenant Colonel in the USMC (Reserves) and a "Top Gun" F/A 18 pilot who has served in Afghanistan and Iraq. Myers holds a Bachelor's degree in physics from the University of California at Davis and an MBA from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business.

"Over the past four years Clean Power Finance has flourished from a small start-up to a well-respected company with major industry partners," said Micah Myers, SVP of business development and program management. "I look forward to helping CPF cultivate and develop strategic partnerships with new and existing industry and funding partners."

Will Sanchez joins Clean Power Finance as vice president, corporate controller, bringing with him approximately fifteen years of experience in both the high-tech and clean-tech sectors. Sanchez was previously corporate controller for EnergyConnect Group, Inc., a public company focusing on demand response services in the PJM, PG&E and Southern California Edison markets. There, he strengthened financial processes and procedures and participated in financial due diligence that facilitated the sale of the company to Johnson Controls, Inc. Sanchez is a certified public accountant with an audit background from PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and earned his Bachelor of Science in business administration from the University of California at Berkeley.

"Clean Power Finance fills a much-needed gap in solar financing in the market today," said Will Sanchez, VP corporate controller. "I very much look forward to working with CPF's top notch industry experts to help the company achieve its financial goals."

Myers and Sanchez are the most recent additions to Clean Power Finance's growing list of industry veterans, which includes solar finance pioneer and SunRun co-founder Robert "Nat" Kreamer, former Tioga Energy executive Kristian Hanelt and solar finance gurus Brian Robertson and Ed Feo. The company also announced last month the addition of Nicholas Mack as senior vice president general counsel and corporate secretary, and Kirstin Hoefer as vice president of marketing.
