Hansen joins Nanosolar from First Solar where he served as the company’s leader for its European sales team. He was previously the general manager of a research and development venture and began his work in the PV industry as the COO of Schott Applied Power.

Before Jinko, Shaw was head of western sales at Suntech Solar and spent 16 years at Otis Elevator and 10 years at Steelcase managing Fortune 100 global accounts. He received his business degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Like Hansen, Zschiegner also joins Nanosolar from First Solar where he was VP of global product management and applications. Prior to First Solar, he worked in various roles at FormFactor, including senior VP and GM of different product business units and VP of marking and global support solutions. Previous appointments include 10 years in marketing management roles at Hewlett-Packard and Agilent Technologies. Zschiegner earned a master’s equivalent degree in electrical engineering from Technical-University Hamburg-Harburg, Germany and completed the executive strategic marketing management program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
“We welcome Stephan, Roy and Stefan to the Nanosolar team,” said Eugenia Corrales, CEO of Nanosolar. “While other companies are constricting, Nanosolar is growing. We are actively hiring in all functions globally and have expanded our German workforce by over 17% since October 2011. And now with a world-class leadership team in place, we are well on our way to fulfilling our go-to-market strategy of delivering leading edge solar technology that enables a world less reliant on fossil fuels.”
