Boasting an impressive resume of accomplishments and an extensive professional portfolio, Yvan Hamel has been named chief product officer at Sollum Technologies. He will focus to elevate Sollum’s catalogue of LED grow lights to the next level as chief product officer (CPO).

In his most recent role before joining Sollum Technologies, Hamel played an invaluable part in the economic expansion of a major LED lighting manufacturer by conceiving their product catalogue, supporting sales activities and client relationships, and negotiating strategic partnerships with suppliers.

“When I first spoke with Louis Brun, Sollum’s CEO and co-founder, I was inspired by the idea of contributing to more productive indoor farming in the context of climate change,” says Hamel. ” I found the idea even more compelling after meeting the young and motivated team behind this great technological innovation, and the potential for growth sealed the deal. After 34 professional years in highly successful companies, I am excited to bring this experience into a venture that will revolutionize horticultural lighting.”
