First Solar adds VP of business development Middle East

First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA, which manufactures thin-film photovoltaic (PV) modules based on cadmium telluride (CdTe) as well as providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, says that Ahmed Nada will join it as VP of business development for the Middle East, reporting to Christopher Burghardt, VP of business development for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). In this new role, Ahmed will be based in the firm’s Dubai office and will lead business development activities in the region outside of Saudi Arabia, where the company is also establishing operations.

Ahmed has 20 years of experience throughout the Middle East, concentrated in the energy and power industries. He joins First Solar after 14 years with General Electric. Most recently, he was the business executive and regional general manager of GE Oil & Gas Global Services in the Middle East.

“The Middle East is just beginning to tap its immense potential solar power generation, and Ahmed’s many years of experience working with the region’s leading energy companies will help us to meet the growing demand for renewable energy in the region,” says Christopher Burghardt.

“Utility-scale solar power offers a compelling solution to the region’s growing energy needs, and this is a great opportunity to leverage First Solar’s proven technology and global experience,” comments Ahmed Nada.

Ahmed holds a Master's of Science degree in international management from HEC Lausanne University in Switzerland.
