"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."
