Bnamericas Published: Monday, September 26, 2022

Mexico City, September 26, 2022 - Enel Mexico, leader in the country’s renewable energy sector, announced the appointment of José Luis Navarro as the company's new Country Manager, following a distinguished career at Enel Group's corporate headquarters in Italy.

"We are witnessing a pivotal moment in history. As we already can see today, society’s progress will be closely linked to the energy transition’s success", José Luis Navarro, Country Manager of Enel Mexico, points out. "Our goal as a company is precisely to contribute toward this end and we have the technological solutions for achieving it. By means of generating renewable energy we can improve costs, while eliminating CO2 emissions, as well as contributing to the reduction of Mexico’s dependence on other countries for the generation of electricity. Our consumption habits of this resource and the pursuit of further efficiency in its use, are equally key to this process. My commitment, along with Enel Mexico’s 350 extraordinary Mexican professionals, is to put all our capabilities, experience and technology in service to the country. I will personally seek common ground and a collaboration framework to jointly forge the best future for Mexico and Mexicans.

José Luis Navarro's professional career began in 2012, planning medium and low voltage power grids in Spain; he held various positions in Europe’s renewable energy and technological innovation sectors afterwards.

Innovation and renewable energies, key for the Enel Group, have also been crucial in José Luis Navarro's career, where he managed projects related to materials and components for solar installations.

Bruno Riga, who held the position of Country Manager in Mexico until September 1, assumes a new responsibility at the helm of Enel Green Power in Brazil. Enel recognizes his contribution and achievements for the company's growth in the Mexican market.

José Luis Navarro's priorities in his new position include working hand in hand with the sector's main players to put Enel's technology, innovation, experience and knowledge at Mexico's disposal to pursue its energy sovereignty objectives, strengthen the national electricity sector and contribute in the efforts against climate change.
