Eos Energy Storage of Edison on Monday announced the appointment of two executives who will join the management team to help drive the company’s future.
Balakrishnan Iyer (Balki) was named chief commercial officer and Nathan McCormick joins as senior vice president of operations.
The manufacturer of safe, long-duration zinc battery storage systems said it is at a critical pivot point, having achieved significant milestones in its research and development and engineering.
“We are now bringing in management talent to prepare for the company’s next phase. Eos will immensely benefit from Nathan’s experience in leading large manufacturing centers and Balki’s successful track record with commercializing business to help scale the business,” said Eos Chief Executive Officer Joe Mastrangelo. “The energy storage market is growing exponentially. Leaders like Balki and Nathan are going to be key catalysts to help Eos serve the greater need to deliver on our promise of scalable clean energy storage solutions.”
McCormick spent the last 25-plus years in the power generation equipment industry and U.S. Army. He served for nearly 20 years in senior manufacturing, demand management and sourcing leadership positions at General Electric. While at GE, McCormick was responsible for all manufacturing activities for U.S.-built steam turbines and generators. In addition to driving safety and quality improvements, while meeting and exceeding production targets, he created a culture of competitiveness to improve product cost and productivity by using lean and digital tools. In 2019, he transitioned to the smaller private equity backed segment when he became executive vice president and general manager of Ioxus Inc., a startup ultra-capacitor company where he prepared the company for growth while operationalizing it.
A passionate recognized leader in clean energy, Iyer will leverage 20-plus years of leadership experience and expertise in the energy industry driving business development for global conglomerates at Eos. He previously held executive roles at General Electric, Enel, Vestas and Schlumberger where he led commercial activities globally, and successfully steered three startups from inception to successful exits, with investments from some of the largest utilities and financial investors worldwide.
