Former National Grid executive Steven Holliday has been named new chairman of Senvion’s supervisory board.
Holliday was 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 May 31.
Holliday previously led National Grid for nearly 10 years and was a non-executive director of Marks & Spencer for 10 years. He has been deputy chairman and senior independent non-executive director at ConvaTec since its 2016 initial public offering (IPO) and is also the lead non-executive director at the U.K. government’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Kowski served as chairman of the supervisory board of Senvion Holding GmbH since its acquisition by Centerbridge Partners in April 2015 and as the chairman of Senvion S.A. since its IPO in March 2016.
