Solar Corp. has added Michael Franklin to its new Solar Technology
Advisory Committee (STAC). Mr. Franklin is the USA consultant for
Impact Hong Kong, and has worked in the Asian market for the past 10
years in the capacity of contracts negotiator, purchasing agent and
consultant in countries including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan.
He has also worked as liaison for Chinese companies with both national
and regional Chinese governments.
“I consider Mr. Franklin’s qualifications to be key for sourcing and contractual negotiations in the Asian Markets. Michael’s associative resources, located in almost every major city in China, tip the balance of supply and demand in our favour,” said Robert Kaapke, CEO of Evolution Solar. He continued, “Evolution Solar is currently seeking additional seats on its Advisory Committee that will meet or exceed the companies’ goals and expectations on forthcoming projects. Our industry is experiencing tremendous growth that could out shine the oil boom.”
Update – July 29th: Evolution Solar has announced that it has retained Mr.
Franklin to its newly-created post of President of Asian Operations, less than a week after his appointment to the company’s Technology Advisory Board. This role will see him apply his years of working in contractual procurement in Asian markets.
