Changing the Way We Think about Power: Mallory Lindgren Takes on New Role as Vice President of Renewables at Westwood
Westwood is pleased to announce Mallory Lindgren will lead the growth strategy for the firm’s Wind and Solar markets in her new role as Vice President of Renewables. Lindgren's dedication to the renewables industry and wide-reaching relationships makes her well suited to oversee the markets as she builds a refreshed and unified path forward.
Lindgren started at Westwood in 2007 and quickly took on more responsibilities as she exemplified great leadership and innovation within the renewables community. Mallory has overseen Westwood’s solar business since 2016 and has led it through exponential growth to become the firm’s largest market in 2020.
“I have always been fascinated by how things are interrelated, and I appreciate the renewables markets for challenging me every day to think of new solutions for our customers and company growth,” says Lindgren. “It is an opportunity to elevate Westwood’s place in a constantly evolving industry as we forge ahead into a clean energy future.”
Westwood has grown significantly over the past decade in services offered and geographic footprint to provide a full-service approach and meet the needs of clients. More recently, Westwood has added experienced teams in transmission and distribution engineering, substation design, and wind resource planning. The company strives to transform the energy grid and design lasting infrastructure by understanding the unique services and needs of the renewable markets it serves.
In Lindgren’s new role, she is responsible for developing Westwood’s strategic pursuit of national renewable energy markets. “Westwood is on a road of rapid growth,” adds Lindgren. “There is tremendous opportunity within the industry to harness our extensive wind, solar, storage, and power delivery experience to create integrated hybrid solutions that utilize our full-service capabilities and meet the goals of our clients. I am both excited and proud to be a part of such a transformative industry.”
Lindgren has expanded Westwood's visibility in her 14 years with the firm by championing community involvement, increasing media exposure, and being involved with numerous industry organizations. Lindgren’s initiative has been proudly recognized as she was named to the Renewable Energy World's 2018 40 Under 40 Solar and Midwest Energy News' "40 Under 40" lists in 2016. She is an active member of Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy (WRISE) and has held leadership positions at the national and local level. She is a Westwood shareholder and is the first female to serve on the board of directors.
