Magnus Energy has kicked off 2024 with yet another steep growth trajectory, adding multiple new recruits to lift the size of the firm to over 50 staff.

Netherlands-headquartered Magnus Energy is expanding its capabilities in the energy and energy transition landscape, building out its team in its home market and across Europe with both experienced and junior consultants.

Having already added close to two dozen new colleagues in 2023, Magnus Energy has so far welcomed seven new faces in the period up to June 2024, across its four lines of business: program management, energy modelling, regulatory & energy analytics, and business & technology consulting.

Magnus Energy continues growth with latest new hire cohort

The most senior of the new hires, Olga Anisimova, has joined as a Senior Managing Consultant. She previously worked for a large global organization as a Senior Manager Technology Program Management in the EMEA region. Anisimova has a focus on digital transformation, in particular process digitization and robotic process automation.

Appointed a Senior Consultant, Robert Gehrke returns to Europe with Magnus Energy, having spent the past years as an economic researcher in Saudi Arabia, focused mainly on energy and subsectors such as renewables and circular energy.

Fei Wu has joined as a Technical Expert, bringing extensive academic credentials to the energy consulting firm. She holds a PhD from ETH Zurich; her research work has been recognised with over 450+ citations, especially in the fields of European energy systems and transition.

Brend Schiere arrived with a consulting background, which he gained at Accenture, where he worked on a large project in the e-mobility landscape. The trio Elena Lungu, Herbert van Even, Jan Sedlacek have been appointed as Consultants – they all arrived fresh from university, although they did already gain diverse working experience during their studies.

An international mix

From its base in the Netherlands, Magnus Energy’s team – which spans 15+ different nationalities – works on energy projects all over Europe. “We currently are involved in projects that cover more than 20 counties,” said Nynke Willemsen, Director at Magnus Energy.

That diverse portfolio of projects, which ranges from shorter advisory-like research projects to multi-year mega transformations such as the European electricity market integration, means that the firm draws on team of international experts from different backgrounds and different countries.

Willemsen said that the firm is delighted to welcome the latest cohort of joiners, and looks forward to the impact they will make internally and at clients.
