In each of his COO positions, Moore launched and scaled successful point of purchase financing businesses.

Incoming CFO Budington brings deep expertise in balance sheet and capital management, financial planning and analysis, pricing, funding and capital markets. Prior to Santander, he was a financial institutions investment banker with Guggenheim Partners, Deutsche Bank, and Merrill Lynch.

Mosaic founder and Executive Chair Billy Parish said, “Patrick has been an invaluable part of Mosaic’s success during his six years as President and COO. As Mosaic enters its next phase of growth, his operational and consumer lending skills will be more important than ever. We will continue to work in complementary ways to increase the awareness and accessibility of sustainable home improvements.”

Mosaic CEO Patrick Moore said, “Billy isn’t just the founder of Mosaic; he’s the founder of the modern residential solar lending industry. Billy has been working to fight climate change for two decades as an activist, political influencer, author and entrepreneur. I’m honored to build on the work he has done to help millions of homeowners, contractors and capital providers benefit from the shift to clean energy.”

Moore added, “As Mosaic grows through new products and partnerships, we’re thrilled to bring on Dan’s expertise in strategic finance and capital markets. With his experience at some of the world’s most respected financial institutions, Dan is the perfect person to add to the work Melissa has done to transform our finance department, building the company’s strategic and operational acumen and creating the strongest finance, capital markets and accounting function in the industry.”

Parish co-founded Mosaic in 2010 as a crowdfunding platform for community-scale solar projects. In 2014, the company shifted from crowdfunding to providing finance options for residential solar projects, later expanding to finance a broad array of sustainable home improvements. The company created the industry’s first 20-year and 25-year solar loans, first battery-only loan, and the first solar loan option with no payments for 18 months. To date, Mosaic has funded $14 billion in loans for residential solar and sustainable home improvements.
