Ballard Power Systems has appointed two new board members from strategic partner Weichai Power to its Board of Directors.

Jiang Kui (also known as Kevin Jiang) and Sun Shaojun (also known as Sherman Sun) join the board, effective 1st January (2019).

These appointments, and the expansion of Ballard’s Board of Directors from seven to nine members, are consistent with the terms of Ballard’s strategic collaboration with the Chinese automotive and equipment manufacturer, who specialises in the production of powertrains, automobiles, intelligent logistics, automotive parts and components.
