Our Founders

Alex Giles
Co-Founder

Before founding Venture, Alex spent several years working for a NYC-based solar energy company and grew it exponentially. His first hand experience there served as the foundation upon which he built Venture Solar. Alex has a BA in Political Science from Ohio Wesleyan University. He also brings his extensive knowledge of home energy solutions to Venture, having played an integral role at Rowayton Fuel, a family-owned oil delivery and heating system business, operated since 1929.

Alex Yackery
Co-founder

Alex left the financial sector to enter the solar industry, after recognizing that solar energy, along with saving the planet, is also a way to help homeowners save money. Before Venture, Alex served as the sales director at one of NYC’s largest solar installation companies for several years. Alex is a former Division 1 national champion in lacrosse and has a BA in Economics with a Business minor from Loyola University in Maryland.
