read | Share:

Direct Energy announced changes to its leadership structure to better position the company for further growth and investment. With last year’s acquisition of Hess’ Energy Marketing business, Bounce Energy, and AWHR, Direct Energy is a leading competitive supplier of commercial and industrial gas and power, and is the largest residential power, gas, and energy services company in North America.

As part of the restructuring, John Schultz has been named President of Direct Energy Business. Direct Energy Business, which now includes Hess Energy Marketing and Direct Energy’s supply and trading business (Direct Energy Upstream), is currently in the process of integrating the three companies into one.

Prior to being named President, John served as head of Direct Energy Business’ east region and, prior to that, was Vice President of Sales and Operations for Hess Energy’s Marketing business. John has more than 20 years of experience in the energy industry in a variety of areas, including natural gas and electricity trading and operations, commercial and industrial sales, and energy infrastructure development. He began his career at the Eastern Group and subsequently worked for Statoil Energy as VP of Energy Operations.
