SOUTH BEND -

South Bend-based Inovateus Solar LLC has expanded its board of directors by adding the co-founder and chief executive officer of tech company Vennli, also based in South Bend. Inovateus says the addition of Gary Gigot will enhance its plans to expand solar services throughout the country.

Gigot joins the board along with Tim Sutherland, chairman and CEO of Virginia-based Middleburg Capital Development. The additions bring the number of board members to five.

"I've been impressed by Inovateus' tightly run business, and based on what the company has already accomplished, I believe it can make a big dent in delivering solar technology over the next 20 years," said Gigot. "I look forward to helping the team apply sales and marketing best practices, scale their organization, and evolve their business model as Inovateus take its place among the industry leaders."

Inovateus President TJ Kanczuzewski calls the addition of Gigot and Sutherland a "major evolutionary milestone" for Inovateus. The other three board members include Kanczuzewski, South Bend-based Logistick Inc. President Ashley Brickley and University of Notre Dame Professor Emeritus George Howard.
