Sopogy, Inc., the leader in MicroCSP solar technology development, manufacturing and installation, announced the appointment of Michael P. Loo as its new chief financial officer.

Loo comes to Sopogy with more than 24 years of corporate financial management and public-accounting experience. Most recently, he served seven years as vice president for finance and administration at Kamehameha Schools which has held the distinction as one of the largest charitable trusts in the US with an estimated portfolio of more than $7 billion.

Prior to Kamehameha Schools he served nine years as vice president-controller, treasurer and corporate officer at Hawaiian Airlines and seven years in the public accounting field as senior manager at KPMG, LLP.

Loo will be transitioning in for Tim Wong who has served as Sopogy’s CFO since 2007. Wong will become the vice president of administration overseeing Human Resources, Information Technology, Professional Services and Strategic Initiatives.

Speaking on the transitions, Darren T. Kimura, chairman, CEO and president of Sopogy, Inc. said, “We are excited to have Michael Loo join our senior leadership team. His experience, focus and desire complement our ambitious goals.”

Kimura added, “Tim Wong has been an exceptional CFO and over the years, demonstrated his robust business skills. I’m anxious to continue working with him as we focus on our strategic initiatives.”

“Having worked with Michael at KPMG, I am confident he will lead us forward as we grow exponentially and expand our international presence,” Wong said.

“Sopogy has been a technology leader in the Concentrating Solar Power field and I’m looking forward to working with the team as we continue to bring the MicroCSP solution to the markets,” Loo said.

Sopogy specializes in MicroCSP solar technologies that bring the economics of large solar energy systems to the industrial, commercial and utility sectors in a smaller, robust and more cost effective package. Sopogy’s goal is to create solar solutions that improve the quality of life and simplify the solar power business.
