Huss was previously employed in A2SEA from 2002 to 2007, when he was head of sales and marketing.
"We have known for a while that Kaj Lindvig had plans of retiring from A2SEA during the summer of 2013 and we have therefore had good time to find a replacement for Kaj in the CSO position" says Jens Frederik Hansen, ceo of A2SEA and continues, "We have looked for a successor who possessed both the sales and market related experience which this position requires, but also a person with the right knowledge of the wind business in specific.
