MICHAEL LATCH | PRINCIPAL
Mike works closely with clients, manages Closehero’s business operations and drives the strategic vision for the company. With an undergraduate degree in Physics and masters in Electrical Engineering, he has amassed an unusually eclectic background working in defense, finance, technology, and residential PV. Given that he had no prior experience in sales, when he became the top residential salesperson at the SunPower National Residential Dealer of the Year recipient in 2011 and 2012 he realized that with the right training and resources, anyone could sell well. This inspired the idea behind Closehero’s purpose, to help our clients leverage technology to grow their business.
Mike is a California native and natural outdoorsman. When he isn’t slinging Closehero’s awesome software building skills he’s either surfing, working out, rock-climbing, or spending time with his loving family. When he isn’t doing any of those, he’s at home killing aliens.
RONALD LEWIS ADONYO | LEAD DEVELOPER
Self-taught software developer with experience in mobile, desktop and web development.
He studied Electronics Engineering Majoring in Nanotechnology in Multimedia University Malaysia. Ronald is driven by his passion to build large polyglot systems that combine hardware and software and has been doing so since he was 11. He has traversed the software engineering world from building payment gateways to gesture recognition using computer vision. He is well versed in a variety of computer languages ranging from low-level C/C++ to high level C#, Objective C, Python, Node.js and has built a number of systems using this knowledge.
Ronald’s favorite pastimes include working out, playing the guitar, learning about new cultures and languages and spending time with his dogs, Ebony and Max.
SCOTT WESTBROOK | DIRECTOR OF SALES
Scott’s responsibilities are not limited to only growing Closehero’s list of clients, he is also heavily involved in the vision and direction of Closehero, putting his 25 years of B2B sales experience to good use. Scott is passionate about how much better sales teams can perform with all the “nifty,” “magic,” and “whiz bang” tech that Ronald & Mike’s product dev teams create for clients, and he has the the drive to take Closehero far into the 21st century as a leader in solar software.
When he is not chasing down potential customers, asking them why they haven’t unlocked their sales team’s potential, Scott is at home surrounded by his loving family (with more on the way!). Scott enjoys watching live sporting events. He is also a prolific public speaker, focusing on educating his Generation X group about how to choose elder care for their parents.
