A member of Nautilus Solar Energy’s asset management team has left the firm for a new role.
Stefanie Padgett took up the position of V.P. renewables at NAES Corp.'s power services division on Nov. 4. She reports to S.V.P. power services, Dan Consie.
She is responsible for directing operations of utility-scale renewable energy projects throughout North America. NAES is a subsidiary of Japan’s Itochu Corp. (PFR, 6/20/03) known for its services as a gas-fired plant operator.
"I’m pleased that Stefanie has joined NAES as she brings a wealth of experience across the renewables sector which is integral to our long term strategic planning, operational excellence, and business development within the renewable marketplace," NAES Corp.'s CEO Tom Bartolomei told PFR.
Padgett had been V.P. asset management at Nautilus for three years. Prior to that, she held positions at First Solar and GE Power. She began her career with an 11-year spell at ABB.
