XZERES Appoints David Hofflich as Chief Executive Officer

WILSONVILLE, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- XZERES Corp. (OTCQB: XPWR), a global renewable energy solutions company, has appointed David Hofflich as chief executive officer, succeeding Frank Greco who will remain president. Hofflich will assume Greco's board seat.

Hofflich is a seasoned financial executive with more than 20 years of experience in multiple industries, including facets of the energy, manufacturing, and distribution. Hofflich has served as interim CEO, CFO, CRO and advisor to numerous publicly and privately-owned companies. He has been recognized for implementing successful strategies in complex business environments and turn-around situations which have created significant enterprise value.

He has been serving as a strategic consultant to XZERES for more than a year, playing a key role in the company's capitalization and acquisition of Skystream and establishing an exclusive license agreement with Argosy Wind Power. Through these in depth strategies, he has developed a strong working knowledge of the company's operations, allowing a smooth integration into his new role as CEO.

With Greco remaining as president, this corporate change will enable Frank to focus on operations and more importantly technical sales and evolving global business development activities. "I have had the pleasure of working closely with David over the past year," noted Greco. "As the company's new CEO, I'm confident he will further focus and drive its expanding opportunities around the world. XZERES has positioned itself with various strategies in an increasing number of market opportunities, including the growing Asian wind market in Japan, Vietnam, India, Philippines as well as in Europe and the Americas. David's tenacity and capabilities will help us effectively pursue the rapidly growing number of opportunities around the world."

Hofflich earlier served as a director at Alix Partners, a global business advisory firm, and Getzler Henrich & Associates, an early pioneer in the turnaround and restructuring sector. Additionally he was a partner at Tatum, an advisory firm comprised of senior operating executives who provide hands-on strategic, financial and technology leadership. Earlier in his career, he served as a controller at UBS Warburg and a senior auditor at Arthur Andersen. He is a certified public accountant, and received his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from SUNY Binghamton and MBA in Finance from Fordham University.

"Over the course of the last year, XZERES has made tremendous progress building a global sales network which is supported by a world class engineering and technical team," said Hofflich. "The company has increased its product offering, transitioning from being a one product company operating in only a few markets to now working on a substantial pipeline of global opportunities with a full range of energy solutions. Given the company's growing sales momentum and backlog, looking ahead we see these efforts producing significant revenue growth and profitability."

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara.

Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
