Dan spent 5 years in sales/origination with Cobalt Power, a large EPC in Mountain View, California. He led sales/origination in the residential unit and was quickly tasked with creating Cobalt’s commercial sales group. Within 2 years, his commercial team out produced their residential comrades and Dan was asked to take over the financial sourcing group, where he developed relationships with banks, investment groups and other financiers to provide funding for all of Cobalt’s commercial projects. In his time at Cobalt, Dan was involved in the origination, development, construction and financing of over 200 solar projects

Prior, and contemporaneous to his time in the semiconductor and solar industries, Dan successfully developed, constructed, and financed several real estate projects in California, both individually and as part of an investment team. Dan’s extensive knowledge and experience in real estate development has parlayed itself into the development procedures adhered to by SCF.
