Recurve (formerly known as Sustainable Spaces), a San Francisco-based provider of home performance software and green energy remodeling services, recently announced that it has named Andy Leventhal as Chief Executive Officer.
Leventhal is a 25-year software entrepreneur and has worked for companies including EMC, VeriSign, Red Hat and Imperva. Most recently, he was the founder and CEO of Planet Metrics, which he successfully sold to Parametric Technology in January 2010.
As reported by Green VC, Recurve obtained $8 million in financing earlier this year to help the company capitalize on opportunities to meet the growing demand for its software suite to the home performance industry.
"We're thrilled to add a CEO with Andy's caliber to grow Recurve to the next level. Andy has been there, done that in major market transformations in IT storage, data security, open source software and most recently as the founder of Planet Metrics, where his team figured out how to measure carbon and energy in the supply chain," said Matt Golden, founder and president of Recurve. "Our company is on its way to leading a new expansion in the home performance industry and Andy shares our vision that every contractor could benefit from our world class software and services as we take the rocket science out of building science. This is the needed boost that our maturing industry needs."
"The team at Recurve is nationally recognized for establishing and leading the home performance industry as both a quality provider of contracting and auditing services for homeowners and with software to equip any contractor with tools to move from audit to profitable, well-executed retrofit projects. Our software drives measurable financial and environmental results that every contractor needs in order to win more business from the homeowner," said Leventhal. "I am excited to draw upon my experience in leveraging the power of software to fuel the potential of this important industry."
