His hands-on leadership, knowledge of sales, marketing, forecasting, budgeting and cost control helps ensure Baker’s solid financial foundation and exponential growth. His passion for renewable energy has positioned him as a respected thought-leader, active in solar energy policy and driving the future of the industry.
Previously Teresso served as president of a bathware manufacturer, St. Thomas Creations, Div. of Villeroy & Boch, where he led the company in a turnaround effort – achieving record profitability.
