Jan Stasik has moved from his post at the parent company, Wagner & Co Solar Technology, to join the UK technical division. Stasik has been appointed technical manager of the solar PV and solar thermal teams, whilst also leading the training programme at the company’s Wagner Academy solar training school.
Stasik’s time at the German solar technology distributor and systems integrator has also included a two-year assignment at Wagner Solar USA, where he was responsible for product and project management as well as developing and implementing training programs for the US installer nationwide.
Wagner Solar UK managing director Carsten Pump observed, “The solar market here in the UK, particularly for PV, is entering a turning point with the new FiT. Installers will need to rethink their business models and quality of service and installation will come to the forefront more now, than ever before. We are fortunate to have Jan on board in the UK to help our installer clients with technical troubleshooting and guidance so they are constantly abreast of the best installation techniques. Many in our technical sales team have been trained by Jan so we are excited about the extra value he will bring to our UK operation and moreover the value we can bring collectively to the UK solar industry.”
Commenting on his appointment, Stasik said, “It is hugely exciting to join the UK market in its emerging days, particularly as the market enters the current new stage of development.”
