Stefan Lütkemeyer, the long-standing chief sales officer of German premium wind turbine manufacturer Enercon, is leaving the company to start his own business in the wind energy sector.

He will be replaced by a new leadership duo for OEM’s sales, project management and service segments - Ulrich Schulze Südhoff and Frederic Maenhaut - who up to now held the positions of regional heads of Central & Northern Europe, and Western Europe respectively.

“We look at Stefan Lütkemeyer’s leaving with great regret but respect his personal decision,’ Enercon chief executive Jürgen Zeschky said.
