GT Advanced Technologies Appoints Dan Squiller As President Of PV And Worldwide Operations; Names Vikram Singh EVP Of Advanced Systems

GT Advanced Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: GTAT) today announced that Dan Squiller has joined the company as President of PV and Worldwide Operations in a newly-created senior role based out of the company’s global operations headquarters in Hong Kong. Squiller will be responsible for the company’s DSS™ and HiCz™ PV businesses, as well as the company’s worldwide manufacturing and field service operations.

“As the company continues to grow and diversify, we need to add depth and broaden the experience base of our executive leadership team,” said Tom Gutierrez, president and chief executive officer. “In Dan Squiller, an executive with whom I have had a long association, we have added an experienced operations executive with a track record of successfully leading and growing global companies.”

Squiller comes to GT with over 25 years of senior technical and business leadership experience and a track record of success in operations, R&D, business development, and sales and marketing roles. Most recently, he was CEO of PowerGenix, a cleantech battery company, where he helped grow the organization from an eight person R&D company to a high volume producer with production and R&D operations in China. Prior to that he was president of the power components business at Invensys, a global division with over $1 billion in annual sales serving the semiconductor, industrial, telecom/datacom, medical, instrumentation, and defense markets.

The company also announced that Vikram Singh, Ph.D, previously vice president and general manager of PV Equipment and Engineering, has been appointed to a new position as executive vice president of advanced systems development, PV R&D and Corporate Engineering Services. In this new role, Singh will focus on next generation solar technologies that are expected to lower cost per watt to levels that can make solar more competitive with traditional sources of energy. Singh will also support Squiller as interim general manager of the HiCz business until the initial launch of GT’s HiCz equipment offering, slated for calendar year 2013.
