Swedish energy group appoints new UK Country Manager
Vattenfall has appointed a new UK Country Manager, the Swedish energy group said today.
Danielle Lane takes up the role in August after joining the company in May this year. Ms Lane replaces Piers Guy, who has held the role of UK Country Manager for five-years and will leave Vattenfall, later in the summer.
Vattenfall has been developing, building and operating wind energy in the UK for almost ten-years. Recently, low carbon growth opportunities in retail, heat, independent distribution and electric vehicle charging were opened as the company drives towards being free from fossil fuel in a generation.
The new, London based Country Manager is looking forward to supporting Vattenfall’s diversifying UK business. “I am hugely excited to have the opportunity to represent Vattenfall in the UK as we build on our ten-year old wind business. We are in Britain to grow and to support the UK’s power, heat and transport sector’s bid for clean air and freedom from fossil fuel.”
“In Danielle we will have a new UK Country Manager who has all the experience and skill needed to support the growth of Vattenfall’s UK businesses,” commented Magnus Hall, Vattenfall’s CEO.
“At the same time, I am sad to see Piers Guy leave us. He has done much to grow our UK wind business and deserves a lot of credit for that.”
Danielle Lane has worked in the UK wind industry for 18-years with roles at The Crown Estate, Ørsted and Centrica. She is also leading the growth of Vattenfall’s offshore wind pipeline as Director of Portfolio and Transactions Offshore.
