Blaine Stout and Klaus Pless have become the latest additions to TecnoSun Solar USA’s team of directors. Stout has been appointed director of operations, while Pless is taking on the role of director of technical marketing and sales.
Stout, who has a wealth of experience in corporate sales, marketing and general management, will concentrate on developing the supply chain for TecnoSun’s trackers. This will be done by implementing new demonstration projects in and around its University of Toledo headquarters, completing UL certification and furthering marketing and business relationships with key accounts in the region.
Pless comes from automotive technology and manufacturing background, where he focused on sales, marketing, project management and executive sales management. He does, however, have experience within the solar industry, having worked with German-based solar tracking technology company IMO Corp. At TecnoSun, Klaus will be responsible for the technical side of the company’s sales and marketing, including lead generation, project development and business development across North America.
“We are very excited to bring Blaine and Klaus on board as we begin to grow the foundation of our company, build top-line revenues and develop a world-class supply chain here in Northwest Ohio,” TecnoSun Solar USA CEO Greg Knudson said. “Both of these gentlemen bring significant corporate, start-up technology and alternative energy experiences consistent with our goal of becoming the premier manufacturer of solar tracking systems in North America.”
