Ms. Lynch brings a strong combination of finance and clean energy experience to the role. She has spent ten years in the clean energy industry, working with organizations such as Sunrun and VoteSolar. Prior to that, she worked at UBS Investment Bank, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank, as well as other institutions, leading teams that raised debt and equity capital.

"Mary Kathryn will play a critical role advancing our mission of providing property owners access to affordable financing to make their homes safer and more efficient while creating jobs and supporting sustainability in their communities," said CEO Kirk Inglis. "She brings a depth of knowledge in finance and a solid commitment to our mission."

"I was drawn to the solar power industry by the potential for major environmental benefit, but realized that without a reliable financing option, too many homeowners would never have the opportunity to benefit from technologies like solar, that can improve their lives," said Ms. Lynch. "I'm honored to step into this role and excited for the opportunity to work with Kirk and the rest of our executive team to build the best in class provider of home improvement financing."

Ms. Lynch led Renew Financial's Capital Markets team in executing three rated 144A securitizations in 2017 and 2018, raising approximately $600 million. In her new role as CFO, Ms. Lynch will help lead the delivery of Renew Financial's affordable, PACE financing to homeowners that are looking to make critical upgrades to their properties.
