Amit Jain takes Over As Global CEO At Sterling And Wilson Solar

India-based Global Solar EPC leader Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited (SWSL) / Company) (BSE Scrip Code: 542760; NSE Symbol: SWSOLAR), has announced the appointment of Amit Jain as Global CEO. He succeeds Bikesh Ogra, who relinquished the position with effect from 31st May 2021. Ogra will continue as a Director on the Board of the Company.

Amit Jain has been associated with Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited since January 2019 as the Country Head for US and Australia. He has been instrumental in developing US and Australia as key markets for the Company. The firm has recorded some of its biggest project wins during his tenure in these markets.

He will take over the global operations of the Company and report to the Board of Directors. He will now be responsible for business development, market growth and the P&L for SWSL that has its operations across 25+ countries. He will continue to operate from Dubai.

Commenting on his appointment, Jain said, “I am humbled to take on this new challenge and dedicated to meeting the high expectations that our customers, partners, employees and other stakeholders have for SWSL. I am deeply passionate about the renewable industry and look forward to making valuable contributions to the green energy transition in the world.

Jain is a veteran in the EPC sector with over 29 years of experience in various industries such as Renewable Energy, Oil & Gas, Chemical/ Process plants, Power Transmission and Telecom Infrastructure. His expertise lies in developing new markets as well as the management and execution of mega projects in challenging environments. He is an Engineer from Delhi University and holds an MBA degree in International Business from Indian Institute of Foreign Trade.

He takes over at a time that, as leader, he has to see as full of possibilities. Besides the unprecedented growth in solar worldwide, the firm has also identified opportunities in storage, data centres and other related sectors to move into. At the same time, for a large EPC, its a time for a relook at their pricing and prediction models, as the markets are in a period of high price volatility and supply challenges. Something that looks set to continue in the foreseeable future.
