Enel Romania’s CEO Georgios Stassis will leave the company to take over one of the Greek utilities, the state-controlled Public Power Corp, Enel officials confirmed for energynomics.ro.
Stassis has been nominated by the energy ministry to succeed PPC’s ex-boss Manolis Panagiotakis, who resigned days after a change of government in Athens earlier this month, according to Reuters and the Greek media.
“We are very pleased with the nomination of Georgios Stassis, as this represents a great professional opportunity, for which we wish him much success. Georgios became Country Manager of Enel in Romania in February 2016, having successfully led the development of Enel Green Power in Greece. In its mandate, Enel’s supply companies in Romania achieved significant results, becoming the largest electricity suppliers on the competitive market, while our distribution operators maintained a high level of investments, installed over 500,000 smart meters – the largest number installed by any distribution operator – they have consolidated their position among the top distribution companies, as leaders of the quality of services. Also, the company Enel X Romania and its investment plan in the field of electric mobility was launched, and Enel Green Power Romania has improved its operational performance, delivering energy that covers about 2% of the final electricity consumption in Romania. Pending confirmation of the appointment of Mr. Stassis, he will remain in office until mid-September to ensure the transfer of responsibilities to the future Country Manager, whose name will be announced shortly,” Enel officials said.
