FREMONT, Calif., May 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Complete Solaria, Inc. (“Complete Solaria” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CSLR), a leading solar technology, services, and installation company, today announced the appointment of Aaron Semliatschenko to the position of VP, U.S. Operations. Mr. Semliatschenko will report to Complete Solaria’s COO, Brian Wuebbels.

Mr. Semliatschenko ran the San Diego operations of Tesla subsidiary Solar City for eight years ending in 2014. He then took over the San Diego operations of Sunrun in 2015 and – over the next nine years – was promoted three times: 1) to run Sunrun’s New England operations, 2) to run the profit and loss center of all of Sunrun’s non-California operations, which accounted for half of Sunrun’s $2 billion in revenue, and 3) to run Sunrun’s U.S. field service operations, which guaranteed system performance and flawless service to one million customers. In short, Mr. Semliatschenko has done every job at Sunrun equivalent to Complete Solaria’s entire operation – but at a scale of one hundred times that of Complete Solaria.

Aaron assumes the role of VP U.S. Operations, and will run the Company’s main office in Salt Lake City, the center of America’s “Solar Valley” from which many of America’s solar companies operate.

Complete Solaria CEO, T.J. Rodgers said, “Convincing Aaron to join our team is a big next step in our transformation. Silicon Valley taught me that hiring the best people is essential for success. And this rule of success now transfers to Aaron, who well understands this challenge and states on his resume that in his first job at Solar City/Tesla, he ‘oversaw the hiring process for new employees in order to ensure compliance with company standards’ [read: smart and hardworking].”

Aaron Semliatschenko said, “I am delighted and honored to join Complete Solaria, a company that will be important in the solar-America transformation. I look forward to building a team at Complete Solaria that delivers the best solar solutions and experience to our customers. I am also looking forward to working with T.J. Rodgers, a demanding leader from the semiconductor industry, as he strives to bring Moore’s Law excellence to the solar industry.”
