Odersun appoints chief financial officer

Odersun AG of Berlin, Germany, which designs and manufactures flexible thin-film solar cells and modules using proprietary CISCuT (copper indium disulfide on copper tape) reel-to-reel manufacturing technology, has appointed Doede Vierstra as chief financial officer and member of its board of management.

Vierstra has worked in various executive finance positions, bringing experience in finance and international management. He joins Odersun from the Dutch energy provider Nuon (now part of the Vattenfall Group), where he was CFO and board member. Previously, he was CFO and member of the executive board of Royal Wessanen, a stock-listed organic food company, and Royal Friesland Foods.

“I strongly believe in renewable energy and solar power in particular, as a main driver in the global transition from fossil to sustainable energy supply,” says Vierstra. “Odersun is a very promising company, whose products make an important contribution in that process,” he adds.

“Vierstra is a great addition to our management team as the company enters the market and continues its growth,” says CEO Dr Hein van der Zeeuw.

Vierstra succeeds Peter van Bommel, who was responsible for the firm's finances since early 2009 and has returned to his home country The Netherlands to accept another position.
