Ready for further growth: Kaveh Etemadi strengthens the management of ROBUR Wind GmbH
ROBUR WIND GmbH appoints the current Director Global Sales Kaveh Etemadi (41) as Managing Director from 01.07.2021. He will lead the company together with the existing Managing Director René Psarski. Kyriakos Kosmidis leaves as Managing Director and focuses on his role as CEO of the Business Unit WIND of ROBUR and Managing Director of ROBUR Wind Holding GmbH.
The 41-year-old wind services specialist Kaveh Etemadi has been responsible for the worldwide sales activities of ROBUR’s wind division at ROBUR WIND as Director Global Sales for the past year and has already been working in the wind industry for eight years. Before joining ROBUR WIND, he was responsible for the entire operative business of “convent experts”, one of Europe’s leading personnel service providers in the wind industry, as Managing Director.
Kaveh is looking forward to his new task: “There is no question that ROBUR WIND has the best prerequisites to remain one of the leading European service providers in the wind industry in the long term. To be able to accompany and shape this path even more actively is a very great challenge and opportunity, which I will fill with joy and motivation. We have a great team and I am looking forward to our joint professional future!”
René Psarski, who will continue to shape the growth course of ROBUR WIND with Kaveh Etemadi as dual leader: “I have known and appreciated Kaveh for several years as a business partner and for 1.5 years as a colleague. With him at my side, I can rely on a committed and strong implementing partner in the management.”
Kyriakos Kosmidis, previous Managing Director alongside René Psarski, will in future focus on the international wind business within ROBUR as Managing Director of ROBUR Wind Holding: “I am very pleased about the development our Northern Europe hub is taking. In addition to René, who has already been successfully implementing his task as Managing Director for years, we are now joined by another manager with many years of experience. But above all, I am very happy that, in addition to the challenges of the renewable market through innovations and digitalization, we can always keep an eye on our operational employees and intensively pass on to them the importance of HSE and training. René and Kaveh form the ideal symbiosis on this path.”
