European Wind Energy Association Chief Executive Officer Thomas Becker is stepping down as the head of the association for personal reasons after two years of service.
Following his appointment in December 2012, Mr. Becker outlined his vision for an industry group that placed renewed emphasis on how the wind energy sector could contribute to jobs, exports and green growth. During his tenure, Mr. Becker also steered EWEA through a transformational period, overseeing a number of key internal changes at the association including the formation of a new Board structure and the implementation of EWEA's new statutes. EWEA's Deputy CEO Malgosia Bartosik will lead the association and assume the responsibilities of the CEO during this transitional period.
