Softbank subsidiary SB Energy has brought in a finance official in the U.S. from a solar developer, while also making several other hires on the project development side.
Gianluca Signorelli came on board this month as vice president, structured finance, having previously worked at Lightsource BP. He declined to comment when contacted by PFR.
The NRG Energy structured finance alumnus had been with Lightsource since mid-2018 (PFR, 9/19/18).
His duties at SB Energy will include overseeing a tax equity raise for the development stage solar portfolio that the company acquired from Intersect Power last year (PFR, 12/5). SB is also on the lookout for a senior structured finance manager to support Signorelli.
The SoftBank outpost has also boosted its development capabilities, recruiting Jeff Spinardi as project manager, operations, from Sterling and Wilson and of Cynthia Wang as V.P., procurement, from Zymergen. Both are former SunEdison staffers.
