  • Rosendin Promotes David Lincoln to Senior Vice President

    Published on February 12, 2020

    Anaheim, CA:– Rosendin, the electrical contracting industry’s largest employee-owned firm, is pleased to announce it has promoted David Lincoln to Senior Vice President. Rosendin is a $2 billion firm with a regional office in Anaheim which is home to Rosendin’s Renewable Energy Group.

    Lincoln joined Rosendin in 2009, launching Rosendin’s first Solar Division with revenues around $9 million and quickly turned it into the leading Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) in the renewable industry. Since then, his team has constructed over 8GW of solar projects and 22GW of wind projects with revenues that will reach over $500 million in 2020.

    “David’s impressive contributions during his 11-year career with Rosendin have helped grow the company year over year by securing large scale renewable energy projects in California and across the country,” said Paolo Degrassi, President. “On a personal note, I’ve worked closely with David at our Anaheim office for many years and can positively say his leadership skills and ability to recruit top talent has been pivotal in the success of Rosendin’s Renewable Energy Group.”

    “Rosendin has given me the opportunity to lead some of the most experienced and talented individuals in the industry and I am confident in our ability to grow our services and expand into new markets,” said Lincoln. “As Senior Vice President, I am thrilled to take on additional responsibilities as we enter a new decade with new challenges that require innovative solutions to meet our country’s growing energy needs.”

    Lincoln brings nearly 40-years of experience in the electrical, solar and construction industry, having started his career as an Electrical Apprentice for I.B.E.W. Local #3 in New York.

    He is also the driving force behind the annual Rosendin Navy SEAL Foundation Golf Tournament, which has raised more than $1 million for military members, veterans and their families since 2016. This year’s tournament on May 21 is expected to attract more than 50-industry sponsors and hundreds of golfers to the Pelican Hill Golf Course in Newport Beach. Lincoln also serves as a committee member for the Navy SEAL Foundation.

    Lincoln will continue to work out of the Anaheim office under the direction of Degrassi, who was promoted to President in December under a new organizational structure that also named Mike Greenawalt as CEO.

    Degrassi and Greenawalt are among five longstanding leaders named to the newly formed Executive Leadership team which replaces retiring executives Tom Sorley and Jim Hawk, along with Larry Beltramo, who is taking a reduced role in the company. The men will retain their positions on the Board of Directors and remain at Rosendin through the end of 2020 to promote stability and provide support.
