Abound Solar, a Loveland, Colo.-based manufacturer of thin-film photovoltaic solar modules, has appointed Craig Witsoe president and CEO of the company. Tom Tiller, current president and CEO, will become chairman of the board of directors. These changes will go into effect on Nov. 1.
Witsoe comes to Abound following three years as president and CEO of Lineage Power, now GE Power Electronics. Under Witsoe's leadership, Lineage Power made significant gains in growth, profitability and customer satisfaction and was sold to GE Energy, Abound Solar says.
Prior to his work at Lineage Power, Witsoe was CEO at The Tyden Group, a manufacturer of product identity and security technology. Before that, he spent nearly 15 years with GE.
