Ian Weygand‘s passion for all things in nature and the sustainability the environment has grown into a fulfilling journey of preserving them for the future generations.
At a young age, summers of robotic classes spiked an early interest in electrical engineering. As a teenager, Ian completed a 2 year advanced education electrical school program which shortly after, lead to him joining the NYC local 3 electrical union. As he advanced his career and education, he continued to hone his skills on unique and exclusive projects such as, the build of the Freedom Tower as well as Yankee Stadium. After completing his apprenticeship with the Union, while simultaneously acquiring his electrical engineering degree, he took an opportunity and position in the Hawaiian Islands where he received his Master Electricians License and began his journey at the forefronts for the beginning of the renewable energy revolution.
While installing solar on residential, commercial and solar farms throughout all of the Hawaiian Islands, Ian quickly received the reputation for being the expert in the solar field. After 5 years and experiencing the incredible impact and positive reaction renewable energy was having for Hawaii, he felt he needed to share this passion and resource with his fellow community and friends. He decided to head back to New York and build his first Solar Energy company. After a couple years and reaching great heights with his company, while working with amazing people, this journey led him into the next personal growth stage of his career.
Ian was called to use his knowledge gained of electrical and renewable energy over the many years, to help and learn from others. This new chapter brought him to Puerto Rico right after the devastation of Hurricane Maria. The year spent in Puerto Rico was truly a humbling and learning experience. For Ian, the eye opening experience of how reliant people are on energy and how fragile the infrastructure that delivers power to peoples homes really is, put more into perspective of what needs to be done to build and create a more resilient form of energy for all this is when RENEW USA was born.
“Our goal is to create an energy future that is with out poles, wires and boundaries. An energy market that is decentralized, free of fossil fuels and the grip of big oil corporations. A future in that energy is created silently, abundantly and without a negative impact on our environment. This future energy will be intelligent and communicate so that it could be traded and shared with others, when and where it is needed.” – Ian Weygand
Bob Van started his professional career at the young age of 19 as a Professor of Electrical Engineering. After spending a few years teaching he ventured out into the business world taking the position of VP of Engineer for a New York based Telecommunications Company. He spent two years with the company and at the age of 26 started his entrepreneurial journey. He spent the next ten years building his first business through organic growth and M&A activities. Completing more than six acquisitions during thatten year time frame. His company was then the target of an acquisition from a national organization and he sold his first company at the age of 36. Upon completion of the sale and his obligations running the New York division for the new company he took a year off and spent time working for various local churches as a carpenter, handyman and Deacon. His greatest joy was later realized as a Youth Pastor and Youth Group Leader mentoring and teaching young adults about the life of Christ and their daily walk with God.
At 40 his entrepreneurial spirit kicked in once again and he began building a new company. He once again built the new company through organic growth and M&A activities in the same manner he did earlier in his career. History would then repeat itself as a national organization targeted his company in early 2020 and the acquisition was completed by the end of the third quarter.
Throughout his life he has always believed in the entrepreneurial spirit, the hard work that must accompany it and most importantly following the path that God has laid out before him.
Now in his later years he is taking a step back from the daily operations and is supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs. As a mentor, teacher and visionary he brings his years of experience to the RENEW USA team with a renewed excitement and vision for the future.
