GE Renewable Energy Business has appointed Duncan Berry as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of LM Wind Power. He will succeed Marc de Jong, CEO since June 2015, who will leave the company at the end of April 2018. Duncan Berry was appointed to his current role as LM Integration Leader in September 2016. He is currently responsible for all aspects of integrating LM into GE following acquisition in April 2017.
“We are very pleased to have a seasoned and energized leader in Duncan Berry ready to take the CEO role at LM Wind Power,” said Jérôme Pécresse, CEO, GE Renewable Energy. “Berry has been leading GE teams and businesses for 10+ years, served as our LM integration leader, and has a strong rapport with employees and customers.
Prior to joining RE, Berry was CEO of GE Capital Australia & New Zealand. He was previously Operations Leader for GE Capital Americas, a $100BN mid-market lender, responsible for all operations activities across twelve business units in the US, Canada & Mexico. This followed a successful period as CEO of GE Money Home Lending, a leading specialist lender in the UK with assets of $15 BN.
“Berry, 49, joined Renewable Energy in 2016 to help define the business strategy for our offshore wind business, which ultimately resulted in the launch of the Haliade-X, and then immediately moved over to the LM Wind Power deal once it was announced in 2017. He’s been working side by side with Marc de Jong and the leadership team ever since and is well prepared to take the helm. Marc and I agree that he is overwhelmingly the best choice to lead LM Wind Power in its next evolution.”
Berry has a degree in history from Oxford University, an MBA from INSEAD and is a UK Chartered Accountant.
