Sollum Technologies Names Chief Product Officer

Yvan Hamel will focus on bringing Sollum’s catalogue of dynamic LED grow lights to the next level as executive vice president (EVP), chief product officer (CPO).

With 34 years of industry experience, Hamel has developed expertise in the areas of product research and development, advanced lighting technology and business growth. In his most recent role before joining Sollum Technologies, Hamel played a 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 Mr. 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.”

The entire team at Sollum Technologies looks forward to working with Hamel. Louis Brun adds, “Our Sollum family is always growing, and we are welcoming the very best in the business. Yvan Hamel, with his outstanding background and reputation, is an exciting and valuable addition to our team. As EVP and CPO, his leadership will help guide us as we continue to break new ground in controlled environment agriculture.”
