Thoughts about the initial employee lineup.
In addition to the core group (board), many of whom can share related positions and tasks, and the basics necessary to be in business - accountant, HR, etc, In my opinion, the following personnel/talent will be necessary from the start. Many of these specialties will need to be expanded relatively shortly as business warrants.
A core capability. We need the following financial people exclusive of internal requirements.
A core capability, designers who are aware of Alternative energy & BIPV, and passionate about learning.
In order to build on the growing awareness, marketing/advertising will be incredibly important to make people aware of solutions, and who can supply them. Actual production can be outsourced. A marketing department consisting of:
Sales incorporates not only direct sales, but representatives interfacing our company with other entities.
The actual installation and site work can be farmed out to Carefully vetted and certified contractors. We do need to have 1 or 2 on staff who are competent in this arena. We also need a 'general contractor' on staff to manage these independents, as well as a technical rep to deal with customers contractors & builders. This is also another great arena to look into offering internships and getting talent from trade schools, etc, as long as they are carefully overseen. We need staff to do that!
