Abe was born and raised in Morocco, where he went to school for photography and played soccer. After coming to the US, he joined the Solaren team in 2018 and quickly worked his way up the ranks to be promoted to Site Supervisor.

Hollis Walls

Hollis is a native Nashvillian who served his community in the hospitality industry for many years. When the COVID pandemic came along, Hollis was unfortunately out of a job, along with many others. This is what led him to Solaren. Hollis is now one of our traffic control division’s most dedicated teammates. He is always willing to help out, and do whatever job is asked of him. He describes himself as a fun loving and caring person, and we couldn’t agree more. Hollis says, “I’ve found a higher calling by working with the first responders of Solaren. I enjoy the camaraderie with management and my teammates. I feel I am making a difference every day with the necessity of my position, helping to keep people safe.”

“Safety aware, because we care.”
