Rich Milanese, President and founder of LRJ, recognized a need for a business in the renewable energy sector that could accurately analyze the relationship between the technologies being quoted by the PV Solar & LED lighting installers, and the facility to which they were proposing installation. As a result LRJ has helped bridge the gap between the energy efficient technology solution, and the facility hurdles associated with installation. His former position of EVP of business development @ Advanced Green Technologies (2007 through September 2011), Partner & VP at P & A Roofing and Sheet Metal (2003 through February 2007) President @ Hurricane Systems, (1991 through 2002) enable him to make an effortless transition between roofing & solar integration, and provides him with the project management skills required to bring projects in on time, and within the specified budget. Mr. Milanese is a graduate of the University of Miami Business Management program, and holds certified General & Roofing Contractor licenses, and has successfully completed the Foster Learning Center Executive Leadership program.
