QuantaSol Ltd., a designer and manufacturer of strain-balanced quantum-well solar cells, says it has undergone restructuring as it readies for volume manufacture. In late 2009, Chris Shannon was appointed CEO. Since his appointment, Shannon has overseen two new appointments to the QuantaSol management team.
Ivor Thomas joins as chief financial officer and brings extensive experience from within several U.K.-listed technology companies. His role at QuantaSol will involve the introduction of financial and operational systems in preparation for rapid growth.
Also joining as vice president of engineering is Dr. Gianluca Bacchin, whose previous positions include product development director at Intense Ltd. and senior researcher/engineer at Corning OTI.
Dr. Tom Tibbits has become director of product marketing in a move from his previous role at QuantaSol as product engineering director. Tibbits has been with QuantaSol since its outset.
