Greentech Lad America: GE has named Andy Holt to head
Renewable Energy Services at GE Energy.

The 16-year company veteran will be general manager,
Renewable Energy Services at GE Energy.

Andy will lead the growing wind and solar services
segment of GE’s Renewable Energy business, underscoring GE’s commitment to help
customers increase power production and revenues from their installed
equipment.

“With his strong leadership skills, extensive knowledge of services operations
and his years of experience within GE Energy, Andy will play a key part in
driving strategic growth for our services business globally,” said Vic Abate,
vice president of GE’s Renewable Energy business.

GE more than doubled its investment in services research and development in
both 2010 and 2011 as it continues to expand upon a world-class portfolio of
services.

GE’s wind service solutions incorporate the company’s
advanced technology, global resources and service facilities and a network of
skilled, highly trained local technicians who are closely connected to GE’s
engineering organization.

Holt makes the move to the renewables team from his most recent role as general
manager for service operations within GE Oil & Gas based in Florence,
Italy. There he led a 1,500-person operations team responsible for field
service, repairs and parts fulfillment, as well as safety, quality and
technical training.

Holt brings to his role in renewables more than 16 years of experience in
supply chain optimization, service business fulfillment and commercial
operations in a variety of previous roles including marketing, quality and
operations in both services and new equipment businesses.
