Mark French

Senior Sales Consultant

Outside of my interest in renewable energy, I like to spend my time with my wife of 20 years and my 3 daughters. We live on a small horse farm which accounts for a lot of quality time together. What I enjoy most, however, is the time I spend coaching and watching my girls play the various sports that they are into, especially basketball. For me, this is a short-lived part of my life and I plan to enjoy it as much as possible.

Outside of work I spend most of my time rock climbing. Climbing has been my hobby for a decade now and I spend about every weekend outside doing some sort of activity. I enjoy kayaking, mountain and road biking, as well as hiking and snowshoeing.

My name is Matthew Kaczor. I am an outdoor enthusiast who loves hunting and fishing. My love for the natural environment pushed me to attend Paul Smith's College, where I graduated with a degree in biology. Today I continue showing my appreciation for the environment by installing solar.
