Eneco appoints Manja Thiry as Director Business Development

Manja Thiry (1973) will join Eneco on 1 February in the position of Director Business Development. In her previous job at district heating network company Ennatuurlijk, she was responsible for the operations of the district heating company as well as the business development of the district heating networks in the province of North Brabant.

At Eneco she will focus in particular on accelerating the improvement of sustainability in city districts in the Netherlands, in cooperation with stakeholders such as housing corporations, municipalities and citizens' initiatives. Thiry says: "Finding common interests is the most important link in the energy transition, far more than attention for technology and financial aspects."
