CIS thin-film company Odersun has appointed Doede Vierstra as its chief financial officer and member of the board. Vierstra succeeds Peter van Bommel, who was responsible for the company’s finances since early 2009. Van Bommel steps down as part of his decision to return to his home country, The Netherlands, and has accepted another position in the meantime.
Vierstra joins Odersun from the Dutch energy provider Nuon, which is now part of the Vattenfall Group, where he was also CFO and member of the board. His new appointment will take effect from September 1.
“I strongly believe in renewable energy and solar power in particular, as a main driver in the global transition from fossil to sustainable energy supply. That transition has to start now and Odersun is a very promising company, whose products make an important contribution in that process,” said Vierstra.
“Mr. Vierstra is a great addition to our management team as the company enters the market and continues its growth,” adds Dr. Hein van der Zeeuw, CEO at Odersun. “We are glad to have found in Doede Vierstra a very experienced and dedicated professional.”
