Engie reorganizes North American units
French utilty and LNG player Engie on Tuesday said it has rebranded its operations in the United States and Canada under the company’s new strategic direction and regional organization.
Under the newly launched company, Engie has unified its renewable and natural gas-fired generation, liquefied natural gas, retail energy supply, and energy services businesses.
Frank Demaille who served as executive vice president of Engie’s international division of the energy branch, in charge of its business development and activities in the Pacific, Asia, and the Americas, has been appointed CEO of Engie North America.
Speaking about the reorganization, Demaille said the company looks to work with its customers “through the development of large or small-scale renewable, natural gas, LNG, or retail energy supply options, through reduced consumption via digital or other means, or a combination.”
Additionally, Engie named Suthiwong Kongsiri as chief financial officer, André Canguçu as head of business development, and Scott Flippen as head of acquisitions, investments, and financial advisory, and analysis.
Prior to joining the new Engie North America team, Kongsiri served as the CFO for Engie’s electric utility business in Thailand, Canguçu led the company’s acquisitions, investments, and financial advisory group in Latin America, and Flippen served as performance control director for the North American power generation business.
