Baker Electric Solar, a full-service solar integrator specializing in green technology design / build residential solar and commercial solar installations, has appointed Mike Teresso president. With more than 15 years in corporate leadership positions, Teresso brings a wealth of experience in growing environment-friendly businesses -- pairing high-value customer service with high-level profit gains.
In his new position, Teresso is responsible for strategic and operational planning. As a hands-on leader, he is poised to identify and foster growth in Baker Electric Solar core competencies, as well as lead and manage the rapid corporate cultural changes Baker Electric Solar experiences with exponential growth. In addition, Teresso's knowledge of sales, marketing, forecasting, budgeting and cost control helps ensure the solar integrator's solid financial foundation.
Previously Teresso served as president of bathware manufacturer, St. Thomas Creations, Div. of Villeroy & Boch, where he led the company in a turnaround effort – achieving record profitability. Most recently Teresso was director at LAUFEN North America, Bathroom Culture Since 1892.

Teresso received his M.B.A. from Texas Christian University, M.J. Neeley School of Business. He resides with his family in the City of San Diego.

"The consumer benefits of going solar and resulting market growth projections are clear," said BES CEO Ted Baker. "In order to ensure Baker Electric Solar remains a market leader and is able to expand with the increased demand for solar, we needed to add an executive frontrunner to our team, with a track record of success in a high-growth home improvement industry. Mike Teresso is this leader."
