Goldwind Americas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co. Ltd., (Goldwind), has named David Sale CEO of the Chicago-based company.
Tony Pan, CEO of Goldwind International Holdings, says in a statement, “We welcome Mr. Sale to the Goldwind team. He brings a wealth of knowledge rooted in wind technology expansion in the North American market, and we are pleased to welcome him to the growing Goldwind Americas team in Chicago.”
Sale joins Goldwind from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, from which he brings extensive experience leading, innovating, and scaling wind turbine sales and technology businesses in the Americas and on a global level, including having guided a number of companies and business units through critical transformation periods, says Goldwind. Sale holds a Bachelor of Science in industrial-organizational psychology and business from Pennsylvania State University.
Goldwind recently announced that former CEO David Halligan would be leaving the company to launch a new renewable energy venture. The new venture, focused on distributed and digital energy solutions, will look to deploy Goldwind’s permanent-magnet direct-drive wind turbine technology as part of its complement of energy solutions.
