Ken Lewis headshotWALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Quick Mount PV has announced the appointment of Kenneth R. Lewis as president of the Walnut Creek, Calif.-based company. Lewis first joined Quick Mount PV as VP of Operations in Dec. 2011.

Lewis’ career spans more than three decades, primarily in the life sciences industry, where he held executive positions with Magnex Scientific, Varian, Inc., and, most recently, Agilent Technologies.

“Ken’s depth of management experience in high-growth companies will be invaluable to Quick Mount PV,” said CEO Claudia Wentworth. “We were extremely fortunate to find an executive with Ken’s skills and expertise to direct company operations during this period of accelerated growth.”

To accommodate the tremendous increase in demand for its products and the concurrent expansion of manufacturing capacity and staff, Quick Mount PV recently moved operations to a newly acquired 89,000 square foot facility in Walnut Creek. Lewis sees his primary mission as president as effectively managing this exciting period in the company’s development.

“I’m looking forward to this opportunity to help the company continually improve business practices as we make significant financial and organizational commitments to the future,” Lewis said.

Lewis is equally determined to carry forward the company’s core commitment to sustainable practices, with the goal of providing cost-effective, 100 percent code-compliant waterproof mounting systems to the solar industry.

“Quick Mount PV is dedicated to effectively managing its social, economic and environmental impacts,” he said. “I look forward to the challenge of continuing that tradition while remaining competitive in a rapidly changing business environment.”
