New members of EnBW Board of Management take up office
Karlsruhe. Changes on the management team at EnBW in Karlsruhe: Today, two new members of the Board of Management, Dirk Güsewell and Georg Stamatelopoulos, take up office. Chief Technical Officer Hans-Josef Zimmer goes into retirement on the same day. The new Board of Management line-up notably reflects the strategic goal of significant growth in both existing and new energy and infrastructure markets in the years ahead.
“On behalf of the entire Supervisory Board, my sincere thanks go once again to Hans-Josef Zimmer, who is leaving us for reasons of age after almost ten years as Chief Technical Officer and over 30 years of service to the Company. During his tenure, EnBW has evolved from a traditional power station operator into a strong player in renewable energy and in particular a pioneer in offshore technology. He has done a great deal to drive forward the expansion of wind and solar energy and of our power grids, making our business portfolio fit for the future,” said Lutz Feldmann, Chairman of the EnBW Supervisory Board.
The Supervisory Board of EnBW decided at the end of the last year to add further responsibilities to the previous technical remit and to divide it into two management positions:
Dirk Güsewell (51) is to take charge of System Critical Infrastructure. This includes the entire infrastructure-based electricity, gas and water business together with growth areas in innovation, system critical infrastructure and telecommunication. Dirk Güsewell held various positions at Robert Bosch GmbH from 1993 to 1998 before moving to EnBW’s power plant business in 1999. Since 2008, he has developed EnBW’s renewable energy business, most recently as head of renewable energy portfolio development.
Georg Stamatelopoulos (51) will head Sustainable Generation Infrastructure, which takes in everything relating to renewable, conventional and nuclear power generation, trading, research and development and HSSE (health, safety, security and environment). Georg Stamatelopoulos joined EnBW in 2010 after holding positions at AE Energietechnik GmbH and ALSTOM Power Systems GmbH. He has most recently been in charge of the entire renewable and conventional generation asset portfolio.
