Germany's juwi group announced this week that it was restructuring its international project development business, merging business activities in Europe (with the exception of Germany), the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in the newly formed juwi International GmbH.
The company has tapped Stephan Hansen and Dirk Retzlaff to jointly manage the divisions business operations.
Hansen served as managing director of First Solar, where he was also vice president of business development for the EMEA region, from 2004 to 2012. Before joining juwi, he also oversaw worldwide sales of thin-film PV technology for Nanosolar Inc.
Retzlaff has been with juwi since 2009, most recently serving as regional director for Southern Europe and Africa.
"Dirk Retzlaff, who is very acquainted with the EMEA region and Stephan Hansen, an internationally experienced manager from the solar industry, will form a very dynamic and experienced duo that will further boost juwis internationalization strategy, said juwi Chief Operating Officer Jochen Magerfleisch.
Juwi already established units overseeing business in North, Central and South America (Americas) as well as in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region will remain under the umbrella of juwi AG.
