SEATTLE, July 26, 2012. Fast Solar Services today announced that sales and technology industry veteran Robert Stone will join its executive team as head of solar business development. Mr. Stone joins the company, a subsidiary of Seattle-based Fast Water Heater Company, with more than 20 years of sales leadership experience. His most recent positions include head of business development at Wavecom Solutions and Century Link as well as Director of Sales roles at Terabeam and Rhythms Netconnections.
“Bob Stone’s deep experience in developing and overseeing strong sales teams will be a great asset to our growing company,” said Jason Hanleybrown, CEO of Fast Solar Services.
Fast Water Heater launched its Fast Solar Services division in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2011.
