Prior to joining Solar Alliance, Mr. Strandt spent the past 7 years with Beedie Development Group, most recently as Director of Finance of the construction and development company.

Mr. Strandt oversaw the development of strong performance reporting, processes, and analysis to identify risks and key performance indicators. Earlier in his career, he worked at KPMG as a Senior Manager, Assurance, serving major clients in retail, distribution, construction and the public sector from 1998 to 2008.

â€œI would like to thank Jon Lever for his contributions to Solar Alliance and I wish him the best in his future endeavours,â€ said Chairman and CEO Jason Bak. â€œHe has been a valued member of our senior management team for a decade and his contributions will be missed. As we say goodbye to Mr. Lever, we welcome Randy Strandt as the new CFO of Solar Alliance. In his prior roles, Mr. Strandt has proven himself a key member of leadership teams â€“ driving finance, reporting, and staff development.
