New President for Kyocera Solar

Kyocera Solar, manufacturer of a range of solar photovoltaic (PV) products, has appointed a new president for the US-based renewable energy company. Company veteran Steven C. Hill will take charge as president for the Kyocera subsidiary which is part of the burgeoning solar market.

San Diego, California – January 20, 2004 [] Hill, who joined Kyocera in December 1988, served most recently as the national sales manager for Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation’s semiconductor processing equipment parts. He was instrumental in making that business one of Kyocera’s fastest-growing North American divisions. His promotion follows the recent resignation of Douglas Allday, who had served as president of Kyocera Solar, Inc. since July 2000. “Kyocera Solar has been serving the U.S. market since 1980 as a leading supplier of solar electric energy solutions,” said Isao Yukawa, managing director of Kyocera Corporation, the group’s global parent company, and general manager of its Corporate Solar Energy Division. “Our goal is to support energy independence, promote environmental preservation and save the Earth.” Rodney Lanthorne, president of Kyocera International, Inc. and director of Kyocera Corporation, said,”ýthe growth opportunities for Kyocera’s solar energy business are virtually limitless. Under Steve Hill’s leadership, we expect the sales and marketing execution of Kyocera Solar, Inc. to be significantly improved as we make a strong contribution to renewable energy and the preservation of our fragile ecosystem.” “I am a strong advocate of Kyocera’s corporate philosophy to live and work in harmony with society,” Hill said. “This philosophy is closely aligned with the environmental ideals of the solar energy industry. My immediate goal for Kyocera Solar, Inc. is to enhance our market penetration and execution by collaborating more closely with our global parent company and by sharpening our market focus.”
