Dresden (renewablepress) - VSB is expanding its management: Jean-Marc Bazenet will be appointed Chief International Officer from 1 October 2021. Jean-Marc Bazenet brings with him 20 years of experience in the German-French energy sector and will in future tap and expand new markets for wind and photovoltaics.

The VSB Group has been a successful market player for 25 years in the development, planning and operational management of wind farms and photovoltaic plants. The company has a particularly strong presence in Germany, France and Poland, and now also in Finland and Italy. In parallel, the group of companies is growing steadily and with it the importance of international markets, innovative business models and technologies.

“Jean-Marc Bazenet perfectly complements the VSB Group’s senior management with his many years of industry experience, a strong sense of entrepreneurship, and extensive market development expertise,” said Frédéric Lanoë, CEO of the VSB Group.

“To tackle the climate crisis, we need to accelerate the energy transition and achieve CO2 neutrality as quickly as possible. The expansion of renewable energies plays a key role in this. VSB is one of the pioneers in this field and has been characterised by strong ecological and social values ever since its foundation. So I very much look forward to being part of its further international development,” said Jean-Marc Bazenet, the VSB Group’s Chief International Officer designate.

Jean-Marc Bazenet joins the Executive Committee with Frédéric Lanoë (Chief Executive Officer) and Marko Lieske (Chief Financial Officer).
