Wetzel Engineering Inc. (WEI), a specialized systems engineering company serving the wind energy sector, has appointed industry veteran Gary Kanaby as director of marketing and sales. Kanaby will be responsible for business-capture activities, including growing market share among wind farm owners and operators.

For the last decade, Kanaby has been involved in the wind blade manufacturing and service business. Most recently, he served as director of sales for wind energy at Molded Fiber Glass Companies (MFG Wind and MFG Energy Services). Prior to that, he helped Knight & Carver grow a startup wind blade division.

Kanaby is also an active member of the American Wind Energy Association and currently serves on the operations and maintenance, research and development, and public affairs committees. He is a frequent speaker and moderator at wind events and authored many published whitepapers on the topic of wind turbine blades.

"We are delighted to have Gary Kanaby join the Wetzel team," says Kyle Wetzel, chief technology officer of WEI. "His deep experience and base of relationships with wind blade operators and manufacturers will energize our growth initiatives and enhance our market position."
