He is deeply passionate about renewables and has the experience, energy and vision to take REpower through its next stage of growth.”

Andreas Nauen, incoming CEO, said: “REpower has a well deserved reputation for engineering, innovation, quality and customer experience. It has an impressive order book of wind turbines and my task is to now take that success and grow it – sustainably – further and faster, together with securing our place in the market as a wind energy technology leader. I hugely enjoyed my time with Siemens and now look forward to lead REpower into a new era and continue to work in a fascinating and future oriented business.”

Andreas Nauen takes over from Per Hornung Pedersen who remains an Executive Board member and moves to a new role – Chief Business Development and Business Strategy Officer. Tulsi Tanti commented: “Per has shown an extraordinary flair for developing the business over the past years. We are grateful for all he has achieved, and believe that this new role will enable him to devote 100 percent of his time to what he is outstanding at: strategy and developing our business, connecting with our customers and delivering a strong global sales and marketing backbone.” Per Hornung Pedersen will continue in the role of CEO until such time as Andreas Nauen takes up his new role.
