Shell-owned flexible energy firm Limejump has hired former Gazprom and BP exec Catherine Newman as chief operating officer.
She joins the firm with immediate effect and will work alongside founder and CEO, Erik Nygard.
“Catherine brings a wealth of hands-on operational and management experience, which will be invaluable as we grow Limejump’s business, under the umbrella of Shell’s ownership,” said Nygard.
He added that Newman, who was global head of IT & Delivery at Gazprom, “is a visionary leader and first class commercial digital operator”.
Newman said Limejump’s “pioneering work within trading and data in the new energy transition, combined with Shell’s scale and depth of knowledge, is a strong proposition.
“A focal point throughout my career has been leveraging technology to enable commercial success whilst delivering an outstanding level of service. This is what I will bring to Limejump’s customers.”
