(Ottawa) -- Earlier today Jay Yeo, President, Solamon Energy Corp., announced the company has expanded its operations in several new countries with the appointment of Chris Assad, SVP Special Operations. Effective immediately, Mr Assad will continue to develop numerous opportunities and sell the Apollo Acre™ as turnkey commercial-scale solar farms into Lebanon, Tunisia, Kuwait, Cuba and Panama. "Mr Assad brings a wealth of knowledge to the table and we are very proud announce his appointment," says Yeo.
"With his extensive background across a breadth of industries around the world, on behalf of all our stakeholders involved in our projects, he is certainly a welcome addition to our senior team and we believe his impact will be immediate," Yeo explains. "I'm not
putting on any brakes and expect he'll be entering into discussions and beginning to forge relationships with all levels of government and business, as well as regulatory agencies and administrative bodies, sooner than we've issued this press release."
Yeo adds there will be additional announcements forthcoming related to new projects, while expressing optimism for positive outcomes across the Middle East, based on preliminary discussions held this past year for utility-scale solar opportunities in several territories. Solamon executives continue to develop mega-projects in Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, as well as smaller islands in the Eastern Caribbean, and stimulate development activity in Central America and North Africa.
"We believe Mr Assad will achieve incredible success in Central America and North Africa in the short-term," Yeo concludes. "He is a tremendous asset to Solamon, on several levels, and we're very excited about his plans to introduce the Apollo Acre™ and being able to provide renewable energy technologies to communities on a global level today."
