Didier Jeannelle has been named the new managing director of Sputnik Engineering’s French subsidiary Sputnik Engineering France S.A.R.L. Jeannelle will consolidate Sputnik’s presence in France, starting with a move into a larger space and an increase in staff. He will be taking over for Daniel Freudiger, who has managed the subsidiary since its founding last year. Freudiger will head the sales and marketing efforts at Sputnik’s Swiss headquarters.
“The French solar market is booming,” Jeannelle said. “I will continue to promote our close-to-customer policies along with sales of SolarMax products and related services in France.”
Jeannelle has 15 years of experience with high-tech products and, previous to joining Sputnik, worked as a managing director, key account manager and sales director with a manufacturer in the semiconductor industry.
Jeannelle added, “Sputnik Engineering is an international, mid-sized business whose high-tech products contribute to the protection of our environment, something which is also important to me personally. For me, continuing the French subsidiary’s expansion represents an exciting challenge.”
Currently, Sputnik Engineering has offices in Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Italy and France.
