Volker Raffel is the new CEO of the E.ON Romania Group starting with August 1, taking over the attributions from Manfred Paasch, who retired from the position he held for almost two years. From the same date, Mirko Strube became CFO of the group, and Dragoș Bărbulescu took over the position of general manager of the gas and electricity distribution company Delgaz Grid.
With 22 years of experience at E.ON, Volker Raffel is a graduate of technical university studies, specializing in Physics, as well as engineering studies in France, specializing in Energy and Nuclear Energy. In recent years he has held various management positions, most recently as Director of Energy Management, Communication and Coordination at PreussenElektra, the group’s nuclear power company. In Romania, he was part of the team involved, since 2004, in the privatization process of the former Electrica Moldova, later being deputy general manager of the distribution company until 2008.
“We aim at consolidating the results obtained so far by the E.ON group in Romania, moving further towards the strategic objective, that of being a company dedicated to the transition to the new world of energy: sustainable, digital and green, oriented towards satisfying customer needs. This is our common mission,” said Volker Raffel.
As a result, from August 1, Volker Raffel (CEO), Mirko Strube (CFO, Digitalization / IT, HR and other support functions), Claudia Griech (Customer Solutions) and Dragoș Bărbulescu (Distribution) form the Board of Directors of E.ON Romania.
