Solar eclipse: Sunrun’s languishing stock price masks skills of CEO

Sunrun Inc. Chief Executive Lynn Jurich celebrated two milestones this past summer: her daughter’s first birthday and Sunrun’s first anniversary as a public company.

Both events drove home an important life lesson for Jurich, who co-founded the San Francisco–based residential solar installer nine years ago. “You learn that you are not in control of everything,” she said.

Remaining patient and calm serves her well when markets go awry — or when the 14-month-old decides to throw food on the floor.

Jurich, 37, has won accolades in Silicon Valley for her business acumen and leadership style. Friends and colleagues praise her commitment to the environment and in the same breath highlight her powers of empathy and her gift for inspiring employees and friends.
