Above is set to accelerate its international expansion plans with senior hire

Above has appointed Peregrine Fraser as Chief Commercial Officer. Peregrine will be responsible for driving business growth and development across the company’s full-service offerings. His role will focus on Above’s international expansion alongside the development of Above’s disruptive software platform, SolarGain.

Peregrine brings more than 12 years of experience in renewable energy and solar PV, previously holding senior roles at Push Energy, PSH Operations, Macquarie Bank and Evo Energy. Peregrine spent his early career within enterprise software companies such as SAP Ariba, which combined with his knowledge of the solar value chain will be a strong move for Above.

Embarking upon the next step of his career with Above, Peregrine will lead the business development and growth strategies. His wealth of expertise in partnerships, brand development and marketing will be invaluable in expanding our services internationally as we continue to grow in new territories.

Commenting on today’s announcement Above CEO Will Hitchcock says “It is great to have Peregrine onboard, having worked with him on several projects at Push Energy, I know he is an excellent fit  for Above. His blend of software and solar experience is perfect for the next phase of growth.”

Peregrine added “I have always admired the company for its innovation and commitment to quality.  There has been demand for Above’s services in four continents already, and there is a clear need for our services on every solar project.   I hope my experience in managing solar project development, EPC and O&M businesses means we continue to offer pragmatic solutions with measurable benefits to our customers and to take that message to a global audience.”

This new appointment comes at an exciting time for Above as the company continues to grow, completing a successful capital raise to expand its team alongside the acquisition of German aerial inspection company, Ucair. It is a positive milestone for establishing a global presence and maintaining the company’s position as the leading provider for solar aerial inspections and data analysis.
