New Managing Directors Hired for TSCNET Services

As the current Managing Director of TSCNET Services, Siem Bruijns, will return to the Dutch-German transmission system operator (TSO) TenneT, a TSCNET shareholder, the Munich-based Regional Security Coordinator (RSC) has announced the appointment of two new managing directors by the Supervisory Board: Maik Neubauer and Uwe Zimmermann. Both join the company immediately.

“Europe’s energy landscape is changing – and this brings many new challenges for TSOs,” says the Chairman of TSCNET’s Supervisory Board, Dr. Rainer Pflaum. “As one of the European RSCs, TSCNET helps TSOs to fulfil their duties and plays a central role in ensuring the continent’s stable power supply. Maik Neubauer and Uwe Zimmermann are excellent executives with extensive and broad experience at energy and technology companies. Their appointment puts the company in a very strong position going forward.”

Neubauer will be mainly responsible for Finance and Organisation including IT, Energy Market regulations, the relationship to the European TSO partners as well as other political and regulatory stakeholders. Previously, Neubauer was Managing Director of the Shell PrivatEnergie cooperation between Shell Energy Europe and First Utility.

Zimmermann will oversee the operational and technical functions of TSCNET as well as business development. Up to now, he had been the Head of Process Management and Cooperations at the German TSO and TSCNET shareholder 50Hertz, and strongly involved in regional TSO cooperation projects. He has also been chairing TSCNET’s Operational Board.
