German wind turbine maker Senvion has appointed Steven Holliday as the new Chairman of the Supervisory Board effective June 15, 2017.

Holliday has been approved by the Supervisory Board to follow Stefan Kowski who stepped down as Chairman and retired from the Supervisory Board following the Annual General Meeting of Senvion’s shareholders on 31 May, 2017.

Holliday led National Grid, an international electricity and gas company responsible for delivering energy across the UK and northeastern U.S., as Chief Executive for nearly 10 years.

He has been Deputy Chairman and senior independent non-executive director at FTSE 100 listed ConvaTec since its 2016 IPO and is also the lead non-executive director at DEFRA, the U.K. government’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

“Management and the Supervisory Board are very pleased to welcome Steven Holliday as Chairman. The Company continues to execute its growth strategy by driving innovation, quality and growth by focusing on our customers,” said Jürgen Geissinger, CEO at Senvion.

Holliday takes on the Chairman role from Stefan Kowski who served as Chairman of the Supervisory board of Senvion Holding GmbH since the acquisition by Centerbridge Partners in April 2015 and as the Chairman of Senvion S.A. since the IPO in March 2016.

“It has been an honour and a very fulfilling mission to serve as chairman of Senvion while the company has strengthened its position as a technology leader and expanded its presence in its existing and new markets,” said Kowski.

“I would like to thank Centerbridge Partners, my board colleagues and the management team led by Jürgen Geissinger for their commitment, collaboration and excellent efforts.”
