The supervisory board of Uniper SE has appointed Michael Lewis as chief executive officer (CEO) of Uniper SE.

As a trained engineer, Lewis has almost 30 years of experience in the energy sector with a special focus on renewable energy. He started his career in 1993 at Powergen in the UK. Since 2007, he has held various positions at E.ON, including CEO for climate and renewables and, since 2017, CEO of E.ON UK.

Tom Blades, chairman of the Uniper supervisory board says: ‘It will take experience, a broad perspective and passion to anchor Uniper successfully within the new energy world. Michael Lewis brings all of those qualities to the table. We are very grateful to have him on board for this new chapter in the company’s history. I’m very pleased that we were able to determine the CEO succession so quickly. I would like to thank E.ON for the good discussions on Michael Lewis‘ transition and I would also like to take this opportunity again to thank Klaus-Dieter Maubach, who left the Uniper Management Board yesterday, for his extraordinary performance as crisis manager in 2022.’

‘Uniper faces large challenges, but above all huge opportunities when it comes to shaping the energy transition. We will deliver this with utmost reliability and focus. I am looking forward to approaching this task together with the executive team and all colleagues at Uniper, many of whom I still know from our common past and whom I value highly for their expertise and commitment,’ adds Michael Lewis, designated Uniper CEO.

Until Michael Lewis takes office, the responsibilities of the CEO will be assumed by Uniper’s Chief Financial Officer, Jutta Dönges, and Chief Operating Officer, Holger Kreetz.
