The CFO of China Sunergy has left the company. Siegfried Yi Chou Hsu resigned from his current role for personal reasons, effective Oct. 31. While a search for his replacement has begun, the company named Yongfei Chen as financial controller, who will manage daily financial operations in the interim.
