We’re pleased to announce that we have appointed Tim Tiek as our new CEO, effective January 1st 2016. This comes as part of a planned leadership transition that supports the continued growth of Super B. Our founder Prins Doornekamp will become our CTO. Prins will be fully committed to innovation and product development, to ensure Super B will keep its position as the Lithium Battery industry leader.
Background Prins Doornekamp: In 2007 Prins founded Super B (formerly known as GYBE Engineering), and developed a revolutionary new Lithium battery. First for the racing industry and later also for several other applications like Marine, UPS, Automotive and RV markets. In 2010 our in-house production was at full speed and Super B has seen strong growth ever since that moment. Thanks to Prins' passion for battery technology and the dedication of his talented team, Super B is now recognized as the supplier of the safest, most robust and highest efficiency batteries in the industry.
Background Tim Tiek: Tim has a 15 year track record in driving strong revenue growth and high tech innovation at Sensata Technologies and Ericsson. He has held several engineering, marketing, sales and M&A leadership roles before. Tim has a global network in Automotive, Heavy Vehicle, Telecom, Industrial and Semiconductor industries and has worked very closely with many customers in these industries. Tim has led global teams and launched complex products from initial design until high volume production.
Prins: "In the past years I have learned and experienced that an incredibly diverse team can work together and do astonishing things, and not just misunderstand each other and fight. My philosophy has always been ‘If you hire someone for a job make sure that he or she has better skills for that job then you!’ With Tim I have found the leader that can bring Super B to the next level. A strong new leader enables me to stay close to myself and follow my passion: Product development and engineering."
Tim: "I'm very excited to be on board at Super B. It's a great company with a very talented team that's passionate about battery technology and quality. Super B's basis is very solid and the potential for the future is enormous. I believe Super B has all the ingredients to stay ahead of the curve in advanced energy storage, and I'm honored to be part of this great team!"
