Enphase Energy has welcomed Dennis Hollenbeck as its new vice president of engineering; a role that will allow him to combine his 25 years of high-volume, low-cost system design and ASIC development experience and executive management skills.
“My background with successful Silicon Valley companies and high volume semiconductor-based products was a natural fit for Enphase,” said Hollenbeck. “I’ve experienced what it takes to scale successfully at companies like Quantum, and I’m enthusiastic about being part of a highly relevant and rapidly growing industry like solar.”
Hollenbeck joins Enphase from eSilicon where he was COO. He also held different engineering and general management positions with Quantum Corporation before working with eSilicon, including serving as general manager for Quantum’s high-end disk drive division.
“Enphase is scaling quickly to support existing and new markets. Core to our growth is the rapid pace of innovation we bring to solar inverter technology,” said Paul Nahi, CEO of Enphase Energy. “Dennis’s leadership skills, technical breadth and experience in fast growing businesses is ideal as Enphase expands beyond 500,000 units shipped with plans for continued expansion.”
