Hiring the Right People Starts at the Top: Our Inc. Magazine Interview
March 3, 2017
Bret Biggart, CEO of Freedom Solar Power, discusses the implications of Freedom Solar Power’s growth and how hiring the right people for the right positions starts at the top. In interview with Inc. Magazine, Biggart describes how he knew it was time to hire a COO.
In it, our CEO says: “We built the company around the folks we knew we’d need to make it scale. My COO was one of those guys. It wasn’t, for us, like we reached a threshold and said, ‘We’ve done $2 million this year—let’s go get a COO.‘ There always had to be somebody running the operations side of the business because it’s so integral to what we do.”
