SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 4, 2024) – Mission Solar Energy (“MSE”), a leading U.S. manufacturer of solar panels, has appointed solar industry-veteran, Sam Martens, as its next President.
“Mission Solar Energy is growing its footprint and increasing its capacity this year, and Sam is the ideal leader to have at the helm,” said Charles Kim, President & CEO of OCI Enterprises, MSE’s parent company. “He was there when we first broke ground nearly 10 years ago and then served as the Strategic Director for OCI Enterprises, so his return to Mission Solar Energy is a sort of homecoming.”

We are ready to face this new environment head-on.” says Martens. “Mission Solar has a long, trusted track record in the U.S. We are financially stable thanks to a well-fortified parent company.
