Singapore headquartered solar module manufacturer Maxeon Solar Technologies has announced Matt Dawson as the company’s new chief technology officer (CTO) to lead the company’s technology strategic roadmap and lead its innovation and development efforts.
Dawson comes to Maxeon with over 15 years of work experience, most part of which was with SunPower Corporation from which Maxeon was spun-off and where he worked as the vice president research and development in his last position with the company. Here his responsibilities spanned technology strategy, cell and module product development along with managing SunPower’s R&D lab infrastructure.
Till most recently, Dawson worked as the vice president of Sila Technologies that’s working to scale up manufacturing of a silicon anode material for advanced high-performance batteries.
Welcoming Dawson, Maxeon CEO Bill Mulligan said, “He brings a deep understanding of our industry-leading Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) technology together with strong determination to drive future innovation – both critical in ensuring Maxeon continues its solar industry leadership.”
Dawson will officially report to work at Maxeon on March 20, 2023 joining its R&D team in San Jose, California.
With Dawson’s addition, Maxeon’s senior leadership team comprises of most ex-SunPower executives including its Chief Strategy Officer Peter Aschenbrenner, Chief Legal Officer Lindsey Roon Wiedmann, Chief Revenue Officer Mark Babcock and very recently its CEO Bill Mulligan (see New CEO For Maxeon Solar).
