In this episode of The Forward Thinking CFO, we were joined by the inspirational Magdalena Markiewicz, CFO of Eel Power, providers of battery storage for the UK’s energy system.
Magdalena shares her fascinating, slightly non-traditional path to becoming a CFO with us on this episode. Magdalena’s journey took her from New York to Barcelona and back to London where she joined Rothschild. Her ultimate goal was to become a CFO for a company making a difference, and she achieved it at Eel Power. Her journey has been truly remarkable.
Her incredible expertise, straightforward attitude, and passion for low-carbon energy transition and renewable power infrastructure make for a captivating episode. During their discussion, Stephen and Magdalena delve into:
- Transitioning from consulting to the finance industry
- The emerging battery industry and its role in managing grid volatility
- How battery storage works and how it is evolving
- Quality and cost prioritisation for battery storage in the future
Whether you’re an established CFO or an aspiring one, this compelling conversation will give you plenty of food for thought.
