Meet The Team

Jean Claude (JC) Awwad

Chief Executive Officer, Co-Founder

JC Awwad is the CEO and co-founder of Solar Brokers Canada (SBC). In 2012, JC was one-half of a powerful duo who started Solar Brokers Canada (SBC) and he’s since helped propel SBC to become the leading national brokerage firm in the residential renewable energy solutions space.

With rapid growth of the business from just 2 to now over 100 people, JC credits the company’s still-early success to both the nature of the industry as well as the organizational culture that he nurtures. JC’s professional philosophy of continuous self-development, encourages all SBC and SBA stakeholders to take an entrepreneurial and self-governing approach to business. “You set people up for success when you empower them to do great things. Being ambitious as well as whole-heartedly getting behind a product or service you believe in, is a winning formula.”

A lifelong entrepreneur, JC founded his first company – a commercial van & truck retrofit business in Montreal, Quebec at age 23. He grew the business to more than 65 people within 3 divisions, before moving onto the renewable energy space in 2011, with a large firm in Montreal. During his time at this firm, JC connected with his colleague Joseph Barker and together, they formed Solar Brokers Canada.

Today, as Solar Brokers’ co-founders and leaders, JC and Joseph have developed a unique brokerage model that works in the best interest of consumers. Brokers add infinite value to the sales process because they are impartial match-makers, uniting clients with the right products and service providers, all while managing the fine details to make the customer experience easy and enjoyable.

Solar Brokers America was launched in December, 2015 and JC looks forward to bringing his unique brokerage model to customers and brokers across the United States.

Joseph Barker

Chief Operating Officer, Senior Broker & Co-founder

Joseph Barker is Solar Brokers Canada’s COO and co-founder. Joseph began his journey into solar in 2011 when he accepted a senior sales position with a full-service solar provider in Montreal, Quebec. By 2012 he was half of a two-person start-up where he quickly established himself as an industry-leading consumer advocate for renewable energy. Today, that two-person company has grown to employ more than 100 people (and counting) and has recently expanded into the United States. Both Joseph and his partner JC have mastered the art of “divide and conquer”. JC drives the rapid growth of the organization, while Joseph gains greater awareness for the business as an industry leader and he ensures that the company operates like a fine-tuned machine.

Joseph takes a collaborative and educational approach to the business, working with industry leaders internationally to promote cleaner energy choices, stimulate commerce and facilitate job creation. When asked what he loves about this business, Joseph explains that as a brokerage, his unique business model is able to remain impartial and offer consumers educated options rather than just selling them goods; “It’s not just about offering hardware or software, it’s about offering people an experience. He goes on to explain his “birds of a feather” approach to the industry. “When people make the conscious move to renewable energy, they become part of something larger and that has value well beyond just financial benefits. People actually become empowered to change their world – and that is priceless”.

As Solar Brokers America’s head of operations, Joseph leads the organizations’ growing sales and marketing teams, spearheads contract negotiations and identifies and develops international growth opportunities. Joseph’s wider interests include energy and urban economics, sustainable urban planning, and energy policy.
