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.
