SOPOGY NAMES ROGER LAY MARKET MANAGER OF THE SOUTHWEST REGION

San Jose, CA – Sopogy, Inc. manufacturer of MicroCSP™ solar technologies announced the appointment of Roger Lay as Market Manager of the Southwest Region covering Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado. Based in the company’s Arizona office, Lay will oversee Southwest policy, sales and strategic planning. He will report directly to Vice President of Business Development Jim Maskrey.

Mr. Lay has 25 years of sales and customer development at successful start-up technology companies. This experience includes serving as Vice President of Sales for RedXDefense, LLC, Vice President of Business Development at NanoPoint, Vice President of Sales at CORESystems Hawaii, and Vice President of Sales at Net-HOPPER Systems, Inc. Previous positions include National Accounts Manager at IQ Software Corporation and Regional Manager at Management Control Systems, Inc. Mr. Lay also served in the US Marine Corps with a specialty in Airfield Operations.

“Here in the southwest, we are blessed with an abundance of solar radiation found in only a few spots on the planet,” said Lay. “Last year Arizona’s Governor Napolitano shared her vision of Arizona becoming ‘The Persian Gulf of solar energy’. I think her vision is right on target. In fact I think her vision can be applied more broadly to a large part of the southwestern US. I am excited about the opportunities that exist for Sopogy here, and I am delighted to play a role in the company’s rapid growth in this region.”

Mr. Lay attended the University of Alabama with a major in Biology and Jefferson State University with a major in Business Administration.
