Scottsdale, Ariz.-based TPI Composites Inc. announced that Jack Henry and Steve Beaver have joined the wind energy company. Henry will serve as chairman of the audit committee of the company's board of directors, while Beaver will serve as general counsel.

Henry founded Sierra Blanca Ventures LLC, a Phoenix-based private investment and advisory firm. Prior to Sierra Blanca, Henry led the Phoenix operations of Arthur Andersen, retiring as managing partner of the Phoenix office in 2000 after 34 years with the company.

"I'm proud to be associated with TPI during this exciting time in the wind industry," says Henry, who also serves as president of the Arizona Chapter of the National Association of Corporate Directors. "I look forward to seeing the company thrive as it grows and pursues more long-term relationships with key players in the market."

Beaver most recently served as vice president and general counsel of Swift Corp., a truckload carrier with more than $3.5 billion in annual revenue and 22,000 employees in 48 states, Canada and Mexico.

"Alternative energy is on the mind of everyone right now, and I am happy to be a part of this exciting industry and the TPI team," says Beaver. "Wind energy will continue to play a huge role in the future of the U.S., so this opportunity is extremely compelling for me."
