Will Apply Deep Industry Experience to Expansion of Ioxus’ Global Sales, Marketing and Business Development Efforts

ONEONTA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ioxus, Inc., developers and manufacturers of innovative ultracapacitor technologies for a wide range of energy storage markets, today announced that Harvey Wilkinson begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting, who has more than two decades of experience in the energy and technology markets, has joined the company as vice president of business development. In his new role, Wilkinson will be responsible for expanding sales and marketing programs worldwide and building new business development initiatives that are consistent with the company’s overall strategy.

“We welcome Harvey to the company and look forward to his leadership in sales, marketing and business development for further company expansion.”

Prior to Ioxus, Wilkinson was the director of embedded systems sales and a product manager at A123 Systems, one of the world’s leading suppliers of lithium ion batteries.
