By mutual agreement, First Solar and Jim Brown, First Solar’s executive vice president of global business have parted ways, according to an SEC filing issued today.
The departure comes only a day before First Solar prepares to hold its analyst event to discuss 2013 guidance.
Brown joined First Solar in 2008 as vice president, project finance and was later appointed in January 2012, as executive vice president of global business when the company restructured operations, combining its Utility Systems Business Group and Components Business Group under one structure.
Prior to joining First Solar, Brown worked in banking for approximately 20 years covering project and structured finance for the energy and industrial sectors.
