Years at SunPower: 5
Brian keeps close tabs on SunPower’s finances and cash flow. Working in the Finance group, Brian and his colleagues manage the company's worldwide cash and investments. Given the often-volatile state of the world’s economy, Brian says his job is never dull: "Foreign exchange rates change very quickly, directly affecting SunPower. And since it’s not as easy to raise money or get loans as it used to be, we have to be really wise about our cash reserves." Brian is an expert in foreign exchange rates: For his holidays, he often hops on a plane for some far-off land. In one year alone, he visited the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Austria, Ireland, and Spain.
At SunPower, Brian says he has the best of both worlds: working for a large company that has a more intimate feel. “Being here, I get exposure to a lot of complex issues; the kind that only large companies typically deal with," he says. “But SunPower also operates like a small company: There’s not a lot of division between management and employees. I get to interact with the senior execs on a regular basis. And I can see the product of my analytics going to work the next day."
A self-described "NetFlix addict", Brian admits that he's running out of new films to rent (that don't fall into the "terrible" category). He hopes his future includes graduate school and an MBA. In the meantime, he's looking forward to the challenges that his career at SunPower will bring. "It's great to work in a place where I experience big, exciting challenges almost every day. But I also appreciate the fact that at SunPower, even the work of entry-level people is respected."
