meeco AG, headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, announces the appointment of Stuart Moss as General Manager of its U.S. Operations . Mr. Moss will direct all aspects of the U.S. operation, which is based in Orange County, California.
“A large increase in the demand for renewable energy can only be reached by applying a variety of technologies including (PV), explains Dieter Trutschler, Sales Director of meeco AG. meeco was operating in the USA even before last years Presidential elections, adapting its business model to the specific situations in North and South America. Now we want to start taking advantage of the highly favorable market environment.
Stuart Moss brings a particularly strong combination of strategic, business development, operational, and leadership skillsall necessary in the evaluation, positioning, and execution of meecos business model for North and South America. Based on his success at both multinational and entrepreneurial companies focused on technical solutions, we are very excited to have Stuart leading our efforts in these evolving markets.
Both North and South America provide significant opportunities to expand meecos renewable energy footprint, said Mr. Moss. While the Obama administration has made renewable energy a top priority, several States such as California have already adopted aggressive renewable energy targets. While it remains to be seen what eventually comes out of Congress, hundreds of millions of dollars appropriated in the 2009 Stimulus Bill are already being spent on real programs and projects.
At the same time, countries and industries in Central and South America realize more clearly that access to energy, on and off the electricity grid, is critical to their economic growth and the living standards of their citizens.
I look forward to determining where meeco can make the biggest impact and providing solutions to address customers needs in those areas.
