Mainstream shuffles executive pack
Former group COO Andy Kinsella replaces Eddie O’Connor as CEO
Mainstream Renewable Power has named Andy Kinsella as its new chief executive, replacing Eddie O’Connor, who becomes executive chairman.
Kinsella was previously the company’s group chief operating officer.
He will take on responsibility for the running of the group, its strategy and direction, while O’Connor (pictured) will chair the board and lead on broader business relationships, senior external relations and “thought leadership”.
Mainstream also named Roy Gardner, current non-executive chairman, as a senior independent non-executive director.
O’Connor said: “Andy Kinsella has been managing Mainstream’s operations for a number of years and has enormous experience of financing and constructing large power projects around the world.
“I am very confident that Andy can lead the company to the next stage on its journey and capitalise on the enormous success we have had in recent years in developing wind and solar plant in the most promising, fast growing markets of the world.”
Kinsella said: “Eddie O’Connor has been the driving force behind Mainstream since its creation. In his new role he will act as a thought-leader, an ambassador and advocate for both the company and for the renewables industry as a whole.”
