People on the Move: PosiGen, Power Factors, Ulteig, and more


PosiGen has announced the addition of Joelle Haughey as Chief Human Resources Officer. Haughey is an experienced global HR executive who has collaborated with countless executive leaders as a trusted coach and advisor. Most recently, Haughey led her own consulting business which provided a multitude of leadership development, coaching and HR leadership services across multiple industries. Prior to that she held leadership roles across publicly traded and privately held global organizations.

As CHO, Haughey will be responsible for making sure PosiGen attracts, retains and develops the most qualified candidates so the company can continue to carry out its mission of making rooftop solar and energy efficiency available to everyone. Haughey was attracted to PosiGen’s purpose and the fact that it is the most diverse company in the Solar industry.  While she will oversee traditional HR workflows including employee pay, benefits, and providing a safe environment both physically and psychologically, a primary focus will be creating an inclusive work environment that develops and motivates all employees to be successful.

Power Factors, a renewable energy software provider, whose platform is the most extensive and widely deployed solution in the global market, has bolstered its Latin American presence with three new sales hires.

Based in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, the expanded Latin American team will support current and future customer engagements across the region, building upon Power Factors’ track record in Latin America. Already supporting customers with assets in more than 10 countries in the region and a combined renewable energy portfolio capacity of over seven gigawatts, Latin America represents one of the fastest growing markets for Power Factors’ purpose-built software solutions for asset management, field service optimization and performance optimization.

In addition to wind, solar and storage assets, the company recently added capability to support hydroelectric assets. This builds on an established track record of financial and technical management functionality already in place for hundreds of megawatts of global hydroelectric production. The addition makes Power Factors solutions well suited for Latin America and the market’s growing need for managing diverse renewable energy portfolios including hydroelectricity.

Given my confidence in her leadership and the value she has already brought to the business, I was excited to offer her the opportunity. Susan’s broad business knowledge and extensive experience in financial management will continue to be a tremendous asset to Ulteig.”

Prior to joining Ulteig as its interim CFO, Aspelund served in a similar capacity for multiple organizations, most recently for the third-party healthcare administrator HealthEZ, as well as the Midwest-based national law firm Taft Stettinius & Hollister, the Washburn Center for Children in Minneapolis, Volunteers of America MN, CLUES, the Epilepsy Foundation of MN and the MS Society. Aspelund has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Minnesota State University, Mankato.
