I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in theoretical physics. After graduating, I immediately began working as the Vice President of Sales and Business Development at TCN, Inc, a startup software company. (https://www.tcnp3.com/home/) TCN is now the largest software company in Southern Utah. After leaving TCN I founded, operated, and sold several businesses from logistics software and fulfillment, to online marketing and lead generation. In 2012, after selling IQ Logistics, I took a one-year sabbatical with my family to China and Southeast Asia. While in China I opened and operated an American BBQ restaurant in Guangzhou Province. In my spare time, I formulated the business plan for Zing Solar and upon my return executed the plan without taking on any outside investment capital. As a business owner, I feel it is important to have a hands-on approach to operations and have gained an intimate understanding of every aspect of the solar industry from customer acquisition to final permission to operate. Zing Solar has seen amazing triple-digit growth since it was founded and is now a top 30 United States installer. It is incredibly satisfying to not only build a successful company, but to also do it in an industry that is helping so many families financially while helping the natural environment by reducing CO2 emissions.
I have a degree in Finance from BYU and have worked with all sizes of businesses from start-ups to some of the largest Fortune 500 companies including IBM, Deloitte, and Bowne & Co (now RR Donnelley.) My career began in technology development and sales. Since then, I have provided business development and management expertise for leading-edge industries. In the last few years I have turned my focus to the ever-growing field of solar and other renewable energy.
Meet Tyler Jentzsch Director of Solar Technologies
I have been the Director of Solar Technologies at Zing Solar since early in 2013. My responsibilities include researching and integrating modern technologies into our processes, and training teams on the use of these new technologies. I also ensure the quality of our work is always the number one priority with our crews and staff. Another exciting part of my position is researching and opening new markets for our company. My passion for solar comes from my desire to help improve the quality of the natural environment of this great earth we live on.
As Zing Solar’s VP of Sales, I manage all sales teams and sales training in Zing’s new and existing operating locations. I keep our sales team current on the latest news and changes in the industry so they can guide our customers to the best solar product available. Our rapid growth across multiple states shows our sales team consists of hard working, service oriented professionals that put our customers needs first. My background includes 20 years of sales and entrepreneurial experience, with over 10 years in sales management.
I’m the Director of Finance & Technology and manage Zing’s finance and IT teams. Our strategic goals include offering our customers the most competitive financing options through supply chain management and cost controls. We focus on increasing efficiency by streamlining our processes through software and technology optimization. It is an exhilarating challenge to be involved in an industry that is on the cutting edge of technology and is moving so fast in terms of both technology and demand. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Dixie State College and a Master of Accountancy from Southern Utah University.
I joined the Zing Solar team in October 2015 after working at Ulta Beauty and Amazon. I am passionate about my roll in developing our people and improving our warehouse and operations processes. I was a member of the Utah National Guard for 25 years. I started out as an operator in the US Army Special Forces and was commissioned as an engineer officer where I learned the joys of blowing things up. Among my military experiences are commanding an engineer company in Iraq and running the UVU ROTC program. I like to golf and travel whenever possible.
I have lead our highly regarded Zing Solar processing team since early in 2014. It is a pleasure to work with a team of professionals that excel at their work and are excited about the future of our company and the solar industry. My passion for this industry comes from knowing we are playing a major roll in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by providing our customers with clean energy. I am married and have four beautiful children at home that will inherit a better environment because of the work we do here at Zing. I enjoy music and spending time with my family in the Utah mountains whenever possible.
I have been working as a Master Electrician and General Contractor for over 18 years. I believe that solar is the future of energy and joined Zing because of the dedication everyone here has for doing the job right. I have always been passionate about my work and I know we are installing systems that our customers will use and appreciate for decades. I have a great family that I love to spend time with.
I grew up in the small town of Visalia, CA and I have a Bachelors and Masters in Civil Engineering from BYU. As Zing’s Director of Solar Design, I ensures each of our customers have a system that not only meets building codes and performs correctly, but also looks great on their home or property. I also served a two year LDS mission to Sao Paulo Brazil and am currently a grade 8 US soccer referee and track coach.
In 2005 I graduated from the University of San Diego with a degree in Sociology. But my real education comes from visiting 50+ countries around the world. I learned solar as the President of Sales for Peak Power Solutions, a larger Southern California solar company with roughly 80 employees. I hope to help Zing Solar follow one of my mentors who once said, “You can have everything you want in life if you just help enough other people get what they want” (Zig Ziglar). I am now on a quest to help Local businesses join our “Powered By Zing” Program and offer competitive solar programs directly to their clients. We have helped many people go solar with a local company that they feel comfortable with, while empowering that company to join the solar movement. I love being a part of the Zing team and am looking forward to creating lasting partnerships with amazing companies in Southern California and beyond.
