CEO of Brazil’s Eneva departs
Brazilian power generator Eneva’s chief executive is leaving for a new opportunity after six years leading the company.
Pedro Zinner joined the firm as chief financial officer and executive vice president in 2016, after spending more than two years working as chief executive of Parnaíba Gás Natural, a subsidiary of Eneva.
Zinner also held senior positions at oil and gas company BG Group (now part of Shell) and mining company Vale before joining the Brazilian energy group.
Under his leadership, Eneva significantly grew its presence within the renewable and power markets. In the last year, the company acquired the largest LNG-to-power asset in Brazil (PFR, 10/4), a 327 MW gas-fired CCGT power plant (PFR, 8/24), as well as power holding company Focus Energia, which owns a 3GW solar pipeline (PFR, 3/10).
Zinner, who will stay at the company through the transition period, is set to leave no later than March 31, 2023. A replacement has yet to be confirmed.
