SAO PAULO, Nov 1 (Reuters) – The head of Brazilian energy company Eneva SA ( ENEV3.SA ) Pedro Zinner will step down on March 31, the company said in a securities filing on Tuesday.
“After six years as CEO of Eneva, Mr. Zinner will leave the company to pursue new professional challenges,” the company said, without giving further details or a specific date for Zinner’s departure.
Zinner in 2017 became CEO of Eneva, leading the company as it emerged from bankruptcy to position itself as one of the country’s leading energy providers.
Eneva was previously controlled by former oil and mining magnate Eike Batista, who was once Brazil’s richest man, and whose fortunes plunged dramatically within a year.
Eneva said its board of directors has begun a search for a successor and that the outgoing CEO will help with the transition.
