Goldwind USA has named its chief financial officer (CFO), David Halligan, interim CEO while the company conducts a search to replace former CEO Tim Rosenzweig, who recently joined solar developer SolarReserve as CFO.

A search for a permanent CEO for the Americas is under way, the company notes.

Halligan, part of the original team assembled by Goldwind when it established North American headquarters in Chicago in 2010, was responsible for the financial management and control of Goldwind in the Americas.

Prior to joining Goldwind, Halligan was director and controller at First Wind. Halligan joined UPC Wind (the predecessor to First Wind) leading the development of the company's financial operations from a small start-up to a company with more than 150 employees and with $2.2 billion capital raised.
