The new CEO, De Hoz, has been promoted from vice president of offshore wind deals, where he spent the last two years of his career. He joined the company from its parent Iberdrola, where he served as offshore business performance director preparing the company’s offshore wind pipeline for auctions in Germany and the U.K.
Before that, De Hoz worked on onshore wind, developing projects in France, Mexico and Brazil.
