SunPower Corporation spin-off Maxeon Solar Technologies is putting its leadership team in place and has announced the appointments of the company’s Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO), and Chief Legal Officer (CLO) along with composing the definitive list of its Board of Directors. Both the positions will be based at Maxeon Solar’s new headquarters in Singapore.

Tiffany See has been appointed as Maxeon Solar’s CHRO, previously with BHP and Dell Technologies. At Maxeon, See will lead the company’s global human resources organization and will be responsible for driving the global talent and diversity strategies.

The CLO of Maxeon Solar will be Lindsey Wiedmann who has switched over from SunPower where she was the general counsel, Global Projects, Transactions and Operations supporting the solar residential, commercial and large-scale power plant business units globally. She managed legal teams in France, Mexico and the US. At Maxeon Solar, Wiedmann will oversee its worldwide legal affairs and also manage the sustainability team.

“We are delighted to have both Lindsey and Tiffany join the leadership team of Maxeon. Lindsey brings a deep knowledge and understanding of the solar industry at a global scale, and is a critical addition as we rapidly build our presence in the large scale solar market,” said Jeff Waters, CEO of Maxeon Solar Technologies. “Given the depth and breadth of Maxeon’s global footprint, Tiffany brings great experience in managing our growing workforce, especially as we strengthen our team to feed the increasing supply and demand for our industry-leading solar products.”
