REC Group announces Cary Hayes as new Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Americas

San Mateo, CA November 17, 2017
REC Group, the leading European brand for solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, today announced the appointment of Cary Hayes as the new Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the Americas region.

Hayes brings extensive sales and strategic business development experience with him, capitalizing on networks and strategic partners developed over eleven years in the solar industry. He has held senior leadership positions at multiple companies, including most recently being Vice President of Sales & Business Development at Clean Focus Renewables. Hayes is no stranger to REC; he was key member of the original team that brought REC Group to the U.S market starting in 2008. This success helped fuel REC’s strategic growth, leading to the 2010 opening of REC’s vertically-integrated, awarded manufacturing facilities in Singapore.

“We are very pleased to welcome Cary Hayes to REC Group. Cary is a well-respected leader in the solar industry, and brings a strong track record of success to REC. Under his leadership and direction, we look forward to accelerating our successful growth in the Americas region,” said Stephan Herkert, Chief Commercial Officer.

“I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to join REC at such a pivotal time in the industry,” Hayes said. “The REC America’s team is a passionate, committed group, dedicated to delivering a world-class customer experience. To be reunited with colleagues and partners I have known for many years represents an amazing homecoming for me. I look forward to helping continue to build on REC’s success in the market and am thrilled to be part of such a strong team.”
