German PV manufacturer Sunways has announced it has appointed two new members to its supervisory board, namely Xiaofeng Peng and Dr. Yuepeng Wan.
Peng has taken on the role of Chairman of the supervisory board while Dr. Wan has been appointed as Deputy Chairman of the supervisory board.
Peng is the Executive Chairman of the board of LDK Solar and Dr. Wan is the Chief Technology Officer of LDK Solar. LDK Solar is the majority shareholder in Sunways.
Both members were appointed by the local court of Freiburg im Breisgau in Germany following the resignation of Otto Mayer and Andreas Görwitz who stepped down from office for personal reasons. Mayer and Görwitz ended their term on 31 January 2013.
Peng and Dr. Wan will remain in their newly appointed positions until Sunways’ next annual general meeting. The supervisory board has one other member, namely Bing Zhu, Chief Strategy Officer of LDK Solar, who was elected to the board by the shareholders at the company’s last annual general meeting on 30 August 2012.
“I am pleased that the suggestion was taken up by the local court. I would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to the new Supervisory Board members in the name of the entire Management Board of Sunways”, said Mario Zen, Chairman of the Sunways’ management board.
