Joy E. Seitz
President & CEO
From the boardroom to the construction site, a hard hat and heels are not a contradiction for Joy Seitz, CEO of American Solar & Roofing. Just as solar and other technologies are reinventing the way energy is harnessed and put to use, Joy is reinventing and pushing against the “old way” of doing business.
Joy leads the day-to-day management of the company serving discerning homebuilders and homeowners throughout the state. She has dissected every detail of the industry to reshape American Solar & Roofing and accelerate its position as the leading provider of energy technology and roofing solutions in Arizona.
While many in the business focus on what goes on top of a home, Joy’s diligent focus is on people – the individual homeowner, the homebuilder and the team she inspires to make service and quality craftsmanship job one. Choice matters to her – from a homeowner’s ability to choose where and how much to pay for their energy, to how companies take care of their employees. And it shows.
And her focus doesn’t stop at the company’s bottom line; instead, Joy is a dedicated advocate at the local and state levels for renewable choices that are cost-effective for the consumer. She is also a prominent voice within the industry advocating for the proper training, safety, and treatment of tradespeople and her entire team. She believes this not only ensures the company team finds value in their chosen career path but put pride into elevating the skills and craftsmanship they deliver toward superior installations of roofing and solar technologies, leading to delighted customers and partners.
As a native of Arizona, Joy is committed to building quality relationships with those who call the state home and seek to make it an enticing place to live and work. She brings her decades of experience in marketing, business, and policy, supported by a degree in business and world finance from ASU.
