Power-One, a leading provider of renewable energy and energy-efficient power conversion and power management solutions, has appointed Dave Wojciechowski as vice president of renewable energy sales for north America.
Most recently, Wojciechowski held the position of senior director of sales at SMA Solar Technology America. Prior to his tenure at SMA, Dave was the director of global sales at Emcore and held senior engineering positions at a variety of companies, including IBM. He holds an MBA from Columbia Business School and a dual BS in Chemical Engineering from Clarkson University and BA in Chemistry from S.U.N.Y. in Potsdam.
Dr. Alex Levran, president of renewable energy solutions at Power-One, said, “We are excited to have Dave join Power-One, as he brings a wealth of experience and a variety of comprehensive sales strategies to our team. His knowledge of the US and Canadian solar markets and key players will help drive our already strong growth in this market, which we entered in late 2010.”
At the beginning of October 2011, Power-One lowered third quarter revenue expectations, expecting it to be in the range of US$240-245 million, down from previous guidance of US$265-280 million. The company cited weaker-than-expected demand for lower revenue expectation. Sales in the second quarter were US$180 million.
Wojciechowski replaces Kent Sheldon, who previous to Power-One held a position at Enphase Energy.
