Operating committee recruitment for a major energy producer

We were contracted by a major independent power producer (IPP) to support building the project’s operational team, specifically by recruiting a chief financial officer (CFO). As the first IPP in Mali to feed into the national grid, this IPP will serve as a strong precedent and proof-of-concept for follow-on energy investments in the country. Located in the Kayes region of Mali, the plant will provide affordable and reliable power to major gold mines in the area, including in Sadiola, Yatela, Loulo and Tabacoto, as well as to a future cement factory in Gangontery. Development of such industries is impossible without power generation infrastructure. The plant will also provide incremental capacity to power 780,000 households.

We successfully sourced a CFO with top credentials and a strong track record who will enable seamless project completion and operations over the client’s 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Government of Mali.

This engagement was executed through USAID’s Mali Investment Facilitation Platform
