Westwood Professional Services Inc. has announced the strategic repositioning of leadership staff in its wind energy market group. Aaron Tippie has been promoted to the position of director of the company's energy sector, while Steve Windingland has moved from his role as wind engineering manager into Tippie's previous position as director of wind energy.
In his new role, Tippie will oversee broad efforts in each of Westwood's four energy markets: wind, solar, transmission, and oil, gas and pipeline. He will be working with each group to develop and execute strategic plans, pursue business development opportunities and achieve operational goals.
Tippie has been with Westwood since 2005 and previously worked as a wind project developer.
As Westwood's wind energy director, Windingland will be responsible for managing business development efforts and setting operational goals for the company's wind market services. He will remain involved with key clients and projects within the energy engineering group during this transition.
Windingland has been a Westwood employee since 2004 and has been instrumental in expanding the company's engineering services and client base within the wind industry.
