SunModo, an innovator in solar racking and mounting equipment, has announced that its CEO Rick Campfield will step down by year-end.
Company leadership responsibilities will be reassumed by company founder Tony Liu, who has served as the company’s president and chief technology officer. Campfield will support Liu and the SunModo team until the transition is complete.
Campfield became CEO in 2014 and guided a significant product expansion and distribution effort for SunModo’s line of solar racking equipment, the gear that attaches solar panels and wiring to rooftops, building awnings or to the ground.
Liu was a mechanical and thermal engineer at Intel Corp. prior to forming SunModo in 2008.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to help SunModo secure high-caliber talent, build strong customer and supplier relationships worldwide, launch innovative new products and create a permanent office in east Vancouver.
Tony Liu and SunModo are now in a good position to thrive despite the trade- and policy-induced turbulence that makes solar industry business planning so challenging.” said Campfield.
