As we roll out our sustainable energy solutions (SES) to customers in North America, we are excited to announce that our team – and footprint – are growing. 

Along with the recent nominations of Eric Achtmann and Kim Lawrence to our Advisory Council, tenured sales executive Matthew Nestor is joining us as sales director for North America. Nestor has experience working with Fortune 500 companies such as Oracle, and is an exciting addition as we continue to expand our team to support our customers’ needs. 

‘[Nestor] has a proven track record of selling complex enterprise technology solutions and helping [companies] to achieve their objectives,’ says Matthew Cahir, our non-executive director. ‘He has already progressed discussions with a selection of his corporate relationships in North America, which shows the potential interest for VivoPower’s SES solutionin the market.’ 

Nestor will join Cahir, who’s also been the acting president for our US operations, in our newly leased office just outside Washington, DC.  

Along with this growth in the United States, we have entered a lease for an office in TorontoGiven that the United States and Canada are among the largest mining, infrastructure and utilities markets in the world, this presence will complement our established position across these industries in Australia. 

‘Having the capability to engage with decision makers based in these markets will augment our strong presence in Australia,’ added Cahir, and we believe will also significantly expand our addressable market.’
