GT Solar has appointed Noel Watson to its board, bringing the total number of directors to eight. Watson has been chairman of Jacobs Engineering Group since 2006.
“Noel brings a vast amount of knowledge and experience to GT Solar gained from his leadership of one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of professional and technical engineering services,” said J. Bradford Forth, chairman of GT Solar.
“He also brings to GT Solar a unique perspective on the solar industry, largely from his work with Jacobs Engineering Group, which has been building solar generation and manufacturing plants for its clients for quite some time.”
Watson holds a BS in chemical engineering and an honorary doctorate from the University of North Dakota.
The appointment of Watson follows the naming of former Western Digitial chairman Matthew Massengill to the GT Solar board in September.
