Ruben Lazo has been appointed new country president of Vestas Brazil. Lazo has held various leadership positions in Germany, Brazil, Russia and the U.S., before most recently serving as chief commercial officer of AREVA in France.

"This appointment is a key step in Vestas' increased focus and commitment to the Brazilian wind market," comments Marco Graziano, GSVP and Vestas Mediterranean president. "We believe that Brazil will play a strategic role in the years to come, and we are aiming at playing a key part in its wind energy market’s development, with Vestas’ profitable growth ambition.”

Vestas says it installed its first turbines in Brazil in 2000 and opened its office in Sao Paulo in 2008. As of the end of 2013, the company has installed 626 MW of wind capacity in the country and employs 110 people across eight locations.
