"Bill's first-hand knowledge and intimate understanding of SunPower's leading technology and solutions, as well as a deep understanding of the competitive environment, made him the ideal choice to lead our global operations," said Tom Werner, SunPower president and chief executive officer. "He's a proven executive in the upstream solar business, commercializing and delivering innovative products, while keeping a keen eye on costs and the highest efficiencies."

Beginning in 1998, Mulligan worked at SunPower for more than 12 years as vice president of research and development. He led the development of the company's low-cost, one-sun silicon PV cell technology. Also under his leadership SunPower developed and commercialized the world's highest efficiency solar panel.

He currently serves as the vice president of upstream strategy.

His experience also includes serving in various positions at JX Crystals, Inc., developing thermophotovoltaics; National Renewable Energy Laboratory performing doctoral research; AstroPower where he developed low cost solar cells for both terrestrial and space applications; and Fairchild/National Semiconductor working in process engineering and product marketing.

Mulligan received dual undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and History from the University of Washington, a M.S.E in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan and his Ph.D. in Materials Science from the Colorado School of Mines.
