MiaSolé appoints John Carrington as new CEO

MiaSolé has appointed John Carrington as its new chief executive officer. Alongside president Bob Baker, Carrington is part of new-look management team, which is charged with increasing panel efficiency to 15% and scaling up capacity at the California-based thin-film panel manufacturer.

Prior to joining MiaSolé, Carrington served as executive vice president of global marketing and business development at First Solar, where he directed product management initiatives and expanded the company’s worldwide presence. He replaces Joseph Laia, who oversaw the doubling of the company’s module efficiency during his four-year tenure.

“I see a very credible road map to 15% and I think we can get there in 2012,” Carrington said. “That’s more important than scaling up capacity at this point.”

"MiaSolé is entering into an important time in its evolution," said Martin Lagod, managing director and co-founder of Firelake Capital Management, on behalf of the MiaSolé board of directors. "Both John and Bob bring a wealth of experience and the right combination of skills. Their joining speaks volumes to the potential opportunities that we see in the solar market."
