“We are very pleased to welcome Tracy to the helm of Clipsal Solar,” said Heriberto Diarte, Managing Partner of SE Ventures. “We have developed the best direct to consumer solar offering in the world right here in Australia, and Tracy who specialises in growing and scaling-up businesses will help take the company to the next level.”
Speaking on her new role, Tracy was thrilled to join the Clipsal Solar team: “Clipsal is an iconic Australian brand, and I’m excited to join at this exciting stage for the company.
Australia has some of the highest energy prices in the world, and the rooftop solar market is growing. Solar is a considerable investment for homeowners, and so we know there’s huge potential to grow Clipsal Solar to help more Australians get the most out of their investment,” she said.
