Danish wind turbine maker Vestas has appointed Purvin Patel as new Regional President of Asia Pacific, to succeed Clive Turton, who is stepping down from his role after heading Vestas Asia Pacific since 2017.

Patel, who took charge on February 15, 2021, brings with him over 25 years of commercial and operational leadership experience from the earlier role as CEO of ISS UK & Ireland, as well as previous leadership positions at Walmart, Kingfisher Group (UK) and RadhaKrishna Foodland.

Welcoming Patel in Vestas, Juan Araluce, Executive Vice President and Chief Sales Officer, said “I’m delighted to welcome Purvin Patel on board to lead Vestas Asia Pacific as renewables continue to expand their reach in a region with growing electricity needs. Wind and renewable energy have become mainstream, and Purvin’s solid operational background will be a strong asset as we broaden our presence in the region’s existing fast-growing markets and leverage our joint venture in Japan.”

On Clive Turton’s exit, Araluce thanked him by saying that “I’d also like to thank Clive Turton for his contributions to Vestas throughout the last four years and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.”

The company said that it will continue to invest in offering the right solutions for its customers and expand its footprint in the region to meet the growing demand for renewable energy across the Asia Pacific region in the coming decade, including in key markets such as India, Japan, Vietnam, Korea and Australia.

Patel will play a key role in this process with his strong commercial and operational competencies, driving a stronger and more consolidated regional setup in Asia Pacific, it added.

“Vestas has established itself as the global leader in onshore wind and pioneered wind energy in many markets in Asia Pacific region. Together with our strong manufacturing footprint and increased emphasis on offshore wind and development, there’s a huge potential for Vestas to grow profitably in Asia Pacific, and together with the great team in Asia Pacific, I look forward to grasping these opportunities,” said Purvin Patel, incoming President of Vestas Asia Pacific.

In June last year, Patel appointed as Chief Executive Officer of ISS UK and Ireland after worked as CEO of ISS India since 2014. During his tenure at ISS, he also served as Country Manager & CEO of ISS Facility Services India, which employs approximately 60,000 employees, and has been responsible for driving key strategic and transformation projects at board level.

In December 2020, Patel decided to relocate to India for personal reasons and took up a new challenge in Asia outside of ISS.
