RafaelNAME: Rafael Navarro
OFFICE: Houston
TITLE: Market Manager
TIME ON THE MOUNTAIN: 4 years + 3 months

HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR WAY TO THE MOUNTAIN?
Funny you should ask, while attending an event I was approached by a GMEC sales agent, which was my first encounter with GMEC, and then a month later I was reached out to by my former boss, at the time currently employed by GMEC, who was looking for a new Sales Manager. The rest is history.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE GREEN MOUNTAIN MEMORY?
There are so many, but I believe Oct. of 2012 would rank up at the top. That was the month Houston’s Retail & Events team became the first team to break 1,000 sales in a month!

YOUR MOST INTERESTING GREEN MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE
Like the question before, there have been so many interesting experience, but representing GMEC at a breakfast with the Mayor was an honor.

WHAT CHANGES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN THE RENEWABLE INDUSTRY?
I would love to see some wind farms here in the Houston area. We are so close to the coast, which supplies plenty of wind! I think seeing some Solar facilities would be awesome as well, and with our new SolarSPARC product I see that happening sooner rather than later.

WORDS OF WISDOM:
“The only time you fail is when you fail to try.” That’s a great quote my late great uncle used to tell me.
