GL Garrad Hassan has appointed Christoph Thiel as the company's new head of business development and sales. He will be responsible for managing global sales and business development for GL Garrad Hassan worldwide, and will be based out of the company's headquarters in Hamburg, Germany.
In 1998, Thiel joined WINDTEST Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog, which is now a part of GL Garrad Hassan, where he carried out load and power performance measurements on wind turbines. Thiel set up WINDTEST's Spanish subsidiary in Madrid and was based in Spain for almost three years before returning to Germany to build the business development department for measurements and inspections at Kaiser-Wilhelm-Koog.
After a short period elsewhere in the wind industry, Thiel has now returned to GL Garrad Hassan.
