Enphase Energy Names Mike Lewis as Vice President and General Manager of U.S. and Canada Sales

Experienced Tech Executive Will Spearhead Enphase Sales Efforts in the U.S and Canada

PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwired - August 22, 2016) - Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global energy technology company, has named technology industry veteran Mike Lewis as its new vice president of and general manager of U.S. and Canada sales.

Lewis will lead Enphase's U.S. and Canadian sales and field marketing organizations, where he will oversee the development of new business opportunities and the customization of solutions to best meet customer needs.

"Mike is an experienced sales leader with a solid understanding of distribution and top tier accounts, and he has a great track record of developing strong customer and account relationships," said Paul Nahi, president and CEO of Enphase Energy. "He will help strengthen our existing U.S. customer relationships and develop new strategic accounts as we continue to gain market share and execute on the global rollout of the Enphase Home Energy Solution."

Lewis has more than 20 years of management and executive experience in high-technology sales and business development. Prior to joining Enphase, Lewis spent most of his career at Seagate Technology, advancing with increasing levels of responsibility through the sales organization to become senior director of global sales in 2013. He also held management positions at Imation and Datacore prior to Seagate. Lewis has a Bachelor of Science in management from Park University and a Master of Business Administration degree from Regis University.

"Enphase has cracked the code on a scalable, distributed, cloud-based architecture, making it the only company that can offer a truly optimized and integrated clean energy system. Microinverter technology is the future, because it's not limited by the shortcomings of string inverters and their single point of failure," said Lewis. "With a strong, growing installed base and a full pipeline of innovative products across the energy solution and management space, I am thrilled to be at Enphase as the company realizes the full potential of energy management systems."

Lewis joins Enphase at a time of strong growth, with the second quarter of 2016 showing revenue up 24 percent quarter-over-quarter and megawatt shipments up 30 percent. The results came about through executing the strategy that was laid out last year: regaining market share by offering competitive pricing, while driving product cost reductions. Enphase will introduce its sixth-generation microinverter system along with its upcoming AC module products at the Solar Power International 2016 conference in Las Vegas.
