Sterling & Wilson Cogen Solutions names new CEO

Parsippany-based Sterling and Wilson Cogen Solutions LLC announced Monday it has named Thomas W. Smith its new CEO.

SWCOGEN provides end-to-end solutions for combined heat and power and alternative energy applications.

Smith has more than 35 years of experience in the power generation industry.

“Sterling and Wilson, a global energy company, is expanding its business operations in North America with the vision of becoming a dominant player in the distributed energy space. Over the last several years, we have formed an excellent team with decades of experience in the North American CHP market. Now with Tom coming on board, combined with the government’s increased focus on promoting energy efficient solutions, SW is confident of capitalizing on the region’s growing distributed power generation potential,” said SW’s Cogen global CEO Rajesh Shah.

Prior to SWCOGEN, Smith was president of Professional Power Products. He also founded and then sold CPL DG Group Inc. and Endurant Energy LLC.

“SW has a long culture of exceeding customer expectations by going the extra mile in designing and implementing customized offerings and standing behind their performance, this is exactly what the North American market has been lacking. Today SWCOGEN is possibly the only player in the industry with the resources to successfully offer a complete solution from start to finish including feasibility, design, engineering, permitting, financing facilitation, equipment supply, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of projects. SWCOGEN is perfectly positioned to capture the distributed generation industries’ long-standing demand for a well-capitalized player that can offer a single point of project responsibility.” Smith said.
