During its 3 years in business, retail energy supplier North American Power has experienced exponential growth, increasing revenues from $25 million in 2010 to $165 million in 2012. The success of the company’s direct sales model of marketing renewable energy products earned it a spot on Forbes’ 100 Most Promising Companies list for 2011.
North American CEO Kerry Breitbart has also been named a finalist in Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards for New York, a program that honors market leaders that raise the standards of excellence both within their industries and their communities. Breitbart is receiving recognition for his success in growing the company’s revenues and developing its business model, as well as leading its Missions to Millions social responsibility initiative, which currently donates more than $50,000 per month to designated charities.
North American and its leaders show no intention of resting on their laurels. This week, the company opened a new headquarters in Norwalk, Conn. In addition to its Connecticut operations, North American has entered deregulated energy markets in seven other states. The company serves more than 250,000 customers nationwide.
