Nanosolar changes CEOs

Nanosolar Inc. named Eugenia Corrales as its new CEO and said current boss Geoff Tate will retire.

Tate hired Corrales in May 2010 as executive vice president of engineering and operations.

Before then, Corrales worked at Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) in San Jose and spent 11 years at Palo Alto-based Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE: HPQ) She also helped start two cleantech businesses.

San Jose-based Nanosolar, which makes thin film solar technology, had hired Tate himself as interim CEO early in 2010. He had already retired from Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS) in Sunnyvale in 2006.

Nanosolar has a panel-assembly factory in Luckenwalde, Germany, and Corrales has handled operations at that site since Nanosolar hired her.
