Vice President of Sales, Maryland Office
“I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.” – Thomas Edison 1931
Since 2009 Bryan Hacker has been a leader in the solar photovoltaic industry on the East Coast. He brings more than 25 years of B2B and B2C sales experience to Solar Energy World. His strong background in sales and avid interest in technology and the environment make him an ideal member of the SEW management team.
Currently Bryan sits on the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) committee that writes the standards for solar salespeople nationwide. He was part of the first group in the country to carry the PV Technical Sales NABCEP certification. Previously, Bryan held positions on MDV-SEIA policy committees in Maryland and Virginia and the Green Building Council and Sales and Marketing Committee for the Maryland Building Industries Association.
Bryan began working with Solar Energy World in 2009 on the design and sales of residential and commercial photovoltaic systems. In 2012 he went on to The Dow Chemical Company to manage the roll-out of the Powerhouse Solar Shingle system on the east coast. His initial territory of the Mid Atlantic quickly expanded to the entire east coast and in late 2015 Dow chose to abandon the product.
Bryan’s return to Solar Energy World in 2016 was met with great enthusiasm. His policy work with CEO, Geoff Mirkin over the years had shown him to be a capable operator. As the business has grown, SEW has now chosen to develop a VP of Sales position to allow Geoff to focus on larger company goals. Bryan’s experience in the industry and technical know-how make him an invaluable asset to the SEW team.
Currently, Bryan lives in Laurel and enjoys spending time with his wife and darling daughter, that is when he isn’t reading sales and technical manuals.
