Cordelio Power Announces Expanded Management Team and Mission
TORONTO, ON (Jan. 24, 2020): Cordelio Power Inc. ("Cordelio" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the addition of several new team members and a new focus on expansion within the North American renewables market. The new team members include:
John Carson - Chief Executive Officer
Nick Karambelas - Chief Commercial Officer
Paul Rapp - Vice President, Project Development
Luke Pangman - General Counsel
All previous Cordelio team members remain in place, including Laura Jehn (President and General Manager) and Rob Roberti (Chief Financial Officer). The new combined team brings decades of experience in originating, developing, financing, constructing and operating renewable power projects, including recent experience at Alterra Power Corp.

As part of the broadened mission, the Company will now be focused on adding to its portfolio through co-development arrangements with other developers, self-originated development projects, and select acquisitions in targeted North American power markets.
"We are excited to put together this new growth effort, with a talented combined team of renewable energy professionals that have deep North American development experience," said incoming CEO John Carson. "Given our track record, our committed ownership, and the opportunities we are seeing, we anticipate extensive growth in wind, solar and storage development opportunities over the next several years."
The expanded Company will continue to be headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, with additional offices in Vancouver and New York City.
