Ontario-based AMP Solar Group Inc. just brought aboard Phil Henson as Chief Financial Officer. An integral part of AMP Solar’s global senior leadership team, Henson will oversee all project finance initiatives, in addition to leading corporate finance and accounting operations at the firm.
Henson joins AMP Solar from AES Distributed Energy Inc. where he was the Chief Financial Officer. He is an experienced energy finance executive having held senior roles at Main Street Power Company Inc. (the predecessor of AES Distributed Energy), Solar Power Partners, Inc. and XL Capital Assurance Inc.
“Phil’s experience and track record is unparalleled in the industry,” said Paul Ezekiel, AMP Solar’s Executive Chairman. “He will play a key leadership role as we continue our growth in project and corporate finance, and is a welcome addition to our world-class team.”
“I am very excited to join the AMP Solar team,” Henson said. “The company has been successful in each of the markets it has entered, and I am confident that we will be equally successful as we launch our platform in the U.S.”
Today’s announcement comes a week after the company publicized the appointment of another solar industry veteran, Jorge Vargas, formerly of Morgan Stanley, as the Executive Vice President and Head of the Americas.
