Cannon creates CEO position

UNITED STATES: Developer Cannon Power Group has appointed Michael Toke as chief executive officer.

Toke has been Cannon’s senior vice president and general counsel for eight years, and has spent 13 years in the wind industry. The company owns around 4.1GW of renewables projects globally.

The CEO job is a new position that was created in response to the company’s growth, president Gary Hardke said.

Hardke added: "Our company’s project development and financing transactions have grown dramatically in recent years – both in volume and complexity – so a new CEO position will better lead and manage these growing demands."

Toke will continue to manage Cannon’s legal affairs.

San Diego-based Cannon has developed wind farms in Washington state and California.

Its projects include the 399MW Windy Points/Windy Flats, which sold a pre-paid 20-year block of power to the Southern California Public Power Authority.  

Cannon is also planning to install up to 1GW of wind power in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, in partnership with the manufacturer Gamesa.
