Hamburg, Germany-based Conergy has appointed a team of key executives to lead the company. The team will consist of Andrew de Pass, CEO; Alexander Gorski, chief operating officer; Marc Lohoff, chief sales officer; and Christina Welsch, chief financial officer.
The appointments come after a turnaround year for Conergy. In 2013, Conergy AG filed for insolvency and was subsequently acquired by Miami-based Kawa Capital Management. In 2014, the company developed and installed 300 MW of utility-scale projects, bringing its total installed capacity to nearly 1 GW.
De Pass will assume his new role from his prior position as executive chairman of the company board. At Kawa Capital, he led the acquisition of Conergy.
Gorski, based in both Hamburg and Miami, will continue to have regional responsibility for Europe and Africa. He will also add the Americas to his regional responsibilities.
Lohoff, based in Singapore, will continue to be responsible for the Asia, Pacific and Middle East regions, including Japan and Australia.
Welsch, based in Hamburg, comes to her role from her prior position as Conergy's vice president of corporate finance.
With its new management team in place, Conergy says it plans to expand its businesses in solar development; finance; engineering, procurement and construction; and operations and maintenance.
