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).
