Service Manager

The SunCommon Installation team ensures every roof and backyard solar array is handled and installed with great care and expertise. Through the hot days of summer to the bitter cold of winter, these are the smiling faces you'll meet on your big day - your solar install day!

Growing up on a farm shaped Gary’s approach to both hard work, and environmental issues. During his childhood, he learned the importance of land conservation and appreciation for the natural world, passions he carries with him to this day. Gary has been with SunCommon since 2009, and previous to his work in clean energy, Gary spent 35 years as Senior Engineer Manager at IBM.

Gary is also the Mayor of the Village of Rhinebeck and the current Chair of the Hudson River Water Inter-Municipal Council (Hudson 7). Environmental concerns were among the top reasons that Gary decided to run for office, and he has since worked diligently to find practical ways to identify issues and implement solutions for the critical environmental issues that face all local municipalities. Recently, due to concerns about climate change and rising sea levels, Gary led the way in acquiring a grant to protect Rhinebeck’s water treatment plant pump station and he is also a member of the Dutchess County Climate Community Task Force.

He is happily married to his high school sweetheart Brenda, and they have two amazing grown children.
