SACRAMENTO — The California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA) announces the addition of Parker Murray as its new Marketing Director, and bids farewell to outgoing Marketing and Membership Director Kelsea Jones.
Parker Murray rejoins the CALSEIA staff as the incoming Marketing Director. Parker will focus his work on organizing CALSEIA’s multiple networking, training, and fundraising events, as well as directing the organization’s general marketing efforts. Parker served as Deputy Executive Director from 2011 to 2012. Mr. Murray holds an Industrial Design degree from Swarthmore College.
“CALSEIA welcomes Parker back into the fold after taking a few years off to complete his degree,” said Bernadette Del Chiaro, Executive Director of CALSEIA. “We are thrilled to work with Parker again, to build up CALSEIA, and to strengthen the California solar industry.”
Kelsea Jones joined CALSEIA in 2012 and has served primarily as the Marketing and Membership Director since. Under Kelsea’s leadership, CALSEIA’s membership has grown fourfold, from 100 members in 2013, to over 400 members today. She also brought new and innovative ideas to the networking, training, and fundraising events that CALSEIA organizes throughout the year. Kelsea will be moving to Sydney, Australia to become the Director of Sales & Marketing USA and Australia for Green Unicorns.
“Kelsea put a lot of hard work and passion into making CALSEIA and, by extension, California’s solar industry stronger,” said Del Chiaro. “We wish her the best of luck ‘down under’ and thank her for all her service over these past four years.”
