National City, Calif.-based Knight & Carver Wind Group has promoted executive Gary Kanaby to vice president of sales. He will be in charge of the wind energy company's sales, marketing and development.
Kanaby, who has been closely involved with composites for more than 35 years, leads the wind-blade company's sales effort for blade repair and production projects throughout the U.S. and around the world.
‘Gary has long been an integral part of Knight & Carver's pattern of success,’ says Sam Brown, president and CEO of Knight & Carver Wind Group. ‘Through the years, he has achieved a solid reputation in our industry based on his technical knowledge, insights and communication skills. We're pleased to have Gary heading our sales, marketing and development team as we move forward into 2009 and beyond.’
Kanaby, who is a frequent speaker and panelist in wind energy seminars, is in his second stint with Knight & Carver. In the mid-1980s, he served as a supervisor for Knight & Carver's luxury yacht company.
