Drawing on two decades of experience as a senior strategy executive in the electric and gas sectors across North America, Europe, and Asia, he brings experience supporting publicly traded and private capital-backed enterprises. Ed leverages deep expertise in the utility and competitive power industry to help clients fill and cultivate CEO and commercial leadership roles. He is especially passionate about developing leadership talent and building great teams to spearhead decarbonization and the energy transition.

I’m passionate about helping clients put the building blocks in place to crack the generational challenge for business and society of decarbonization and the energy transition.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Ed was a director with National Grid, focusing on strategy, business performance, leadership and transformation in the regulated utility and non-regulated National Grid Ventures.

Earlier, Ed was a Strategy Manager at InterGen, a competitive international power producer, and led the China energy research and consulting practice at S&P Global.
