A third former Ultralife Corp. executive has taken a job at WindTamer Corp.

The Geneseo-based developer and manufacturer of wind turbine technology Tuesday announced the appointment of Adeeb Saba as vice president of operations.

Prior to joining WindTamer, Saba served as Ultralife’s vice president of manufacturing. He also worked at Bausch & Lomb Inc. for several years.

“Adeeb Saba has the background to help WindTamer keep our commitments to customers by delivering and installing our turbines in a timely and reliable manner,” said Gerald Brock, WindTamer’s founder, chairman and CEO, in a statement.

Saba joins William Schmitz, who was named WindTamer’s president and member of its board of directors last month. Schmitz previously was Ultralife’s chief operating officer.

Shortly after Schmitz was hired at WindTamer, the company announced the appointment of Mark Matthews as its vice president of sales and marketing. Matthews formerly was Ultralife’s vice president of government and commercial sales.

WindTamer plans to move into full-scale manufacturing of its patented wind turbine technology in 2010, company officials said.

Shares of WindTamer (OTC BB: WNDT) were trading midday at 70 cents, up nearly 17 percent from Monday’s close of 60 cents.
