PV industry veteran, Andreas Liebheit has resigned from his position as president of Heraeus Photovoltaics, a leading Germany-based PV materials supplier to Chinese manufacturers, effective July 15, for personal reasons.
With a long background in the industry, having previously worked for Solon and Hanwha SolarOne (before it became Hanwha Q Cells), he has grown to become a well know figure.
Liebheit was instrumental in the creation of the Future PV events – which has grown to become an influential international series of events, focused on bringing information about the latest developments in PV manufacturing to project developers and investors. He is well known for being a knowledgable and informed industry leader, with a close relationship to PV cell and module makers in China and internationally.
Most recently, he spoke at pv magazine's Future PV Roundtable, held at last month's Intersolar Europe. “Everybody has to their homework beyond boundaries beyond comfort zones,” he stated. “For Heraeus that means we go beyond paste also to other materials.” Meanwhile, addressing a packed audience at Conexio GmbH’s Business Breakfast, also held at Intersolar, he discussed China’s dominant position in a wide range of electricity markets around the world.
Raymund Chua, Head of HPT in Singapore and Head of Heraeus’ Asia-Pacific Regional Center, has been appointed Liebheit’s temporary successor, while the company searches for a permanent replacement.
“I would like to personally thank Andreas Liebheit for the great commitment he has shown in expanding Heraeus Photovoltaics. Together with the leadership team and all Heraeus Photovoltaics employees, he has positioned this business as a leading provider of photovoltaic solutions,” said CEO, Jan Rinnert.
