Welcome to the team!

By James Watson, CEO, SolarPower Europe


Two new experts have recently joined the SolarPower Europe team and so we offer a warm welcome to Saskia Choffel, Business Development and Marketing Officer and Mate Heisz, Business Analyst. 

Saskia Choffel grew up in Paris, France, before moving  to the Netherlands for her studies. There, she completed a Bachelor in International Business Administration and a master degree in International Management/CEMS at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam. During those 5 years, she gained professional Marketing experience working as an assistant Product Manager for Savencia in France, and was involved in multiple student associations related to Sustainability. With her new position at SolarPower Europe, she managed to combine her business background with her passion for green technologies. She speaks French, English and Dutch fluently. 

Mate Heisz grew up in Budapest, Hungary. He holds a Master's degree in International Relations from the Free University of Berlin, a Master's degree in Economics from the Corvinus University of Budapest and a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Hull (UK). Before joining SolarPower Europe in February 2017, Mate spent four years in Tunisia, working as a Renewable Energy Advisor at the Tunisian Ministry of Energy, on behalf of the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ). Beyond his native Hungarian, he is fluent in English, German and French.
