Sep 7 (Renewables Now) - The founder of Ireland-based wind and solar developer Mainstream Renewable Power, Eddie O'Connor, has handed over the role of chief executive to the company's chief operating officer.
The new CEO, Andy Kinsella, will be responsible for the running of the company, its strategy and direction, Mainstream Renewable said on Tuesday. After nine years as chief executive, O’Connor becomes executive chairman. He will chair the board and lead on broader business relationships, senior external relations and thought leadership, according to the statement.
