Jon Saxon

Chief Development Officer

“Follow up and follow through.”

Jon is the forward-thinking Chief Development Officer at Pine Gate Renewables with a laser focus on identifying opportunities and converting them into clean energy infrastructure. Leveraging his 17+ years of diverse power industry experience across development, M&A, origination, and engineering, he actively anticipates and sees opportunities where others don’t and artfully positions teams across disciplines to accelerate the deployment of our nation’s clean energy infrastructure. Through effective strategic planning and execution, Jon has brought to market over 3GW of operational wind and solar projects across the country while building trust and fostering creativity.

A values-driven leader who loves getting his hands dirty and solving thorny problems, Jon is as likely to help the team navigate a complex interconnection issue as he is to ensure a complicated project or transaction gets across the finish line. His innate drive for high performance and value creating outcomes includes developing talent and enabling others for long-term, sustainable success.

In his “off hours,” Jon embraces opportunities to create personal bests whether pursuing competitive sports or discovering his inner musician with his guitar. His most rewarding challenge, however, is the continuous learning adventure of being the best possible Girl Dad he can be to his two daughters.
