Italian Carlo Pignoloni took over as country manager of utility group Enel’s operations in Romania, replacing Georgios Stassis. The change became effective as of August 22, the group announced in a press release.
Carlo Pignoloni was previously head of Enel Green Power’s operations in Italy.
“We are very pleased to have Carlo Pignoloni as the new country manager of Enel’s operations in Romania. His knowledge of the conventional part of the business coupled with his experience in renewables makes him an ideal candidate for the job,” said Simone Mori, Head of Europe and Euro-Mediterranean Affairs at Enel.
