(PresseBox) (Bitterfeld-Wolfen OT Thalheim, ) The Supervisory Board of CSG Solar AG has appointed Dr. Ottmar Koeder to the Executive Board of the company, filling the Chief Operating Officer (COO)role.

After completing studies in 1986 at the Technical University - Munich in the field of Electrical Engineering Dr. Ottmar Koeder joined Siemens AG's DRAM business, leading a production engineering group specialising in yield improvement and product & process analysis. After a rapid series of promotions, ultimately to post of Vice President Operations (Security &

In his capacity as CSG Solar's COO Dr. Koeder is responsible for Production, Engineering and IT.

David Hogg, CSG Solar's CEO, said: "Dr. Koeder's intellectual capacity together with his extensive management expertise makes him an ideal addition to the CSG Solar team. I have no doubt that he will play a key role in accelerating the improvement in our business we have seen since we commenced 24/7 operations a little over one year ago".

The development of CSG Solar AG began in 1995 in Sydney, Australia when the founders of the Company recognised that a new technology combining the proven durability of conventional crystalline silicon wafer based products and the lower production costs inherent in thin film solar module processing was needed. In June 2004 CSG Solar AG was founded to take the resultant Crystalline Silicon on Glass technology into production for the first time. Ground breaking for construction of CSG Solar's 9,000 sqm production facility in Thalheim occurred in February 2005. In April 2007 the company commenced 24 hours /7 day operation and currently employs 146 at its Thalheim facility.
