Meyer Burger’s transformation towards a strategic focus on high efficiency cell and module technologies is in progress, as was underscored by the recent announcement of the partnership and participation with Oxford PV. As a result of the company’s strategically streamlined product portfolio and sales organization, the role of CCO at corporate level has become redundant.
Escher was instrumental in defining Meyer Burger’s global sales strategy to strengthen the Meyer Burger brand with a one-face-to-the-customer approach. He played a pivotal role in the breakthrough of Heterojunction and SmartWire Connection (SWCT) technologies by securing key contracts with leading players in the PV industry.
Following the departure of Escher and Daniel Lippuner, COO, (as announced on March 21, 2019) at the end of June 2019, the Executive Board will consist of three members: Dr. Hans Brändle, CEO; Manfred Häner, CFO and Dr. Gunter Erfurt, CTO.
