Grid-scale lithium-ion energy storage firm Alevo has appointed Per Dybwad as chief executive offier to serve alongside founder and executive chairman Jostein Eikeland.
The move splits the role of chairman and CEO previously held by Eikeland, with Dybwad now leading the executive team, initially focusing on the company’s manufacturing and commercial development.
Dybwad, who has previously held senior roles at supercapacitor firm Maxwell Technologies, was elected to the Alevo Board of Directors this March and will continue to serve in this position alongside his new role of CEO.
Eikeland said: “Alevo has the right IP, the right infrastructure and the right manufacturing approach to lead this market globally. But the ramp-up to production calls for the oversight of a dedicated CEO and Per Dybwad has the credentials, knowledge and experience to deliver this.”
