Bringing more than 60 years combined experience in the solar, semiconductor and power electronics industries, ArrayPower, a Silicon Valley-based power electronics company, announced the appointment of three members to its core leadership team. Joining the company as vice presidents are Nick Cravalho, Kris Jernstedt and Milan Ilic.
This news comes on the heels of ArrayPower’s launch of its Sequenced Inverter technology, which is fully integrated into solar photovoltaic (PV) modules to enable a simple, reliable and affordable solution to enhance system performance.
Ilic was named vice president of systems design, where he will drive the company’s development and system solution efforts. With more than 25 years of experience in the engineering field, Ilic most recently served as the senior director of research and development for inverter manufacturer Satcon.
Jernstedt joins ArrayPower from eIQ Energy. As vice president of sales and applications support he will be responsible for overseeing sales strategy and customer relations.
Cravalho was appointed vice president of business development in order to accelerate company growth by drawing on his extensive solar and semiconductor industry expertise. Previously, he served as vice president of business development and marketing for silicon ink manufacturer Innovalight, which was recently acquired by DuPont.
“As we prepare to officially unveil our Sequenced Inverter technology, ArrayPower is fortunate to add Milan, Kris and Nick to its already exceptional team of business and technology experts,” said Wendy Arienzo, CEO. “Together, we are well positioned to expand the company’s presence in the international solar market and build a strong network of customers and partners around the globe.”
