E.On Energy Services announced the addition of several key members to its team, with the hiring of a new vice president of business development and several regional account managers.
Kurt Anderson, a veteran in the asset management and O&M sector, will lead long-term contracting efforts for EES, along with Mike Cossentine, vice president of business development. Prior to joining EES, Anderson was one of the founders of Upwind Solutions and a NextLevel Renewables principal who advised numerous O&M sector clients. Anderson also worked for General Electric.
"Kurt is one of the most experienced professionals in this industry and we are thrilled he is joining EES," E.On Energy Services President Keith Day said. "Kurt brings us tons of experience, know-how and creativity. E.On's vision is to be an innovator, cost reducer and thought leader and not just an O&M service provider. We expect to get there faster by leveraging Kurt's experience and knowledge."
Also joining E.On Energy Services is a team of regional managers including Robert Fenstermaker, who will represent the company in the Pacific Northwest; Eric Smith and T.J. Mitchell, who will work with customers in the Midwest; Greg Meek, who will work in West Texas, and Robert Acosta, who will focus on Oklahoma, Kansas and the Texas Panhandle.
"Their in-depth knowledge of gearboxes, high voltage, and long term maintenance experience running sites will help us deliver service with an owner's eye to more customers. Several worked previously for either owners or OEMs and bring the best industry practices to help us better serve clients. Their addition allows EES to dramatically expand its service territory and reach every major wind corridor in the country," Day said.
E.On Energy Services is a full-service provider of major corrective repairs, long term-maintenance and asset management services.
