Ex-Areva Huby back with MAKE

Former Areva Wind CEO Jean Huby has made a swift return to the industry with wind-power research and consulting specialist MAKE.

Huby – who left Areva in the autumn – takes charge of MAKE’s newly-opened Hamburg office as managing consultant.

Huby had led Areva Wind since May 2011 and previously held other senior posts for the French power equipment giant.

He said MAKE’s Hamburg office – which opens for business in January – will “primarily service the important offshore wind market in Europe with a key focus on Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK”.
