Prior to accepting the DMI role, Nilsson was a vice president in the U.S. robotics division of ABB Inc., a multinational engineering corporation. ABB is one of the world's largest independent suppliers of internal components, controls and grid connections for wind-generated power projects.
‘I am impressed with DMI's recent expansion activity and excited to help guide the company's strategic direction and future success,’ Nilsson says. ‘The wind energy sector holds tremendous opportunity, and DMI will continue to grow as a leader in tower manufacturing.’
Nilsson holds a degree in mechanical engineering and received his master's degree in international business management from the University of Uppsala in Sweden. He will relocate from Michigan to the Fargo, N.D., area.
