He has been at Quanta since its inception in 1997 and his new role will further leverage his extensive experience with the company to help me and operations leadership execute on our strategic initiatives as we continue to grow and capitalize on the tremendous opportunities ahead of us. Jayshree has been a great addition to the senior leadership team at Quanta and her financial and corporate development experience and strong operational depth in the energy and renewable energy industries make her the right person to lead Quanta’s financial team as CFO. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Derrick and Jayshree in their new roles.”

As we look towards enhancing our solutions, expanding our operations and capitalizing on energy transition opportunities, we felt it was the right time for me to transition into this new role that leverages my knowledge of Quanta and positions me to further enhance the connection between operational and financial excellence. I am excited about this new opportunity and continuing to work with Duke, Jayshree, Redgie and the rest of the senior leadership team at Quanta as we enter, what I believe, is the most exciting time in Quanta’s history.”
