Secure Futures Solar expands Capacity to Meet Demand for Solar Power in Virginia
On September 1st, 2017 Secure Futures Solar promoted its Administrative Officer, Maggie M. Davison, to the position of Chief Operating Officer. In this new position, Davison oversees and manages finance, administration and human resources for the company.
Expanding its management team will help Secure Futures Solar continue to strengthen its capacity to make solar power more affordable for colleges and universities, hospitals, governments and businesses in Virginia.
“We are enthusiastic about expanding Secure Futures’ role in the sustainable growth of Virginia’s solar economy and are fortunate that Maggie is joining our executive team to help make this happen.” said Dr. Tony Smith, CEO of Secure Futures. “She brings tremendous knowledge, experience, and commitment, and I know that our many business operations will continue to flourish under her direction.”
The announcement by Secure Futures reflects a national trend to promote women to leadership positions – a decision that makes companies more profitable.

Ms. Davison is one of more than 26,000 women working in the booming U.S. solar industry.
