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.
Jim Roche, Chairman of Ballard’s Board of Directors, said, “Kevin Jiang and Sherman Sun both have extensive senior management experience across multiple functional disciplines within the Weichai organisation.”
“Their distinguished careers have included management of engineering and manufacturing operations, together with executive roles in heavy and medium duty motive power segments in China and other markets.”
“We are fortunate to have Kevin and Sherman at the Board table, where their insights and counsel will support continued advancement of Ballard’s growth strategy in China and around the globe.”
Anticipated to play a significant part in accelerating the industry-wide adoption of sustainable solutions for marine e-mobility, ABB and Ballard Power Systems recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on developing next-generation fuel cell systems.
