ANTANHOL, Coimbra, Portugal--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cleanwatts, the leading climate tech company committed to simplifying, amplifying, and accelerating the energy transition for communities around the world, presents Soma Demeny as VP of HR, assuming the responsibility of leading our most important assets: people.
Soma Demeny began his career in Deutsche Telekom, subsequently spending 17 years with General Electric (GE) where he led human resource teams in Finance, Digital and Corporate divisions. Soma’s international career is centered on helping service and manufacturing organizations scale, grow and adapt to change through the implementation of world-class human resource infrastructures and best practices. More recently, Soma directed much of his time and expertise to help smaller mid-market companies reorganize and adapt to change.
Soma carries degrees in Business Studies and Human Resources Management and is a graduate of GE’s prestigious Human Resources Leadership Program. Soma is Hungarian and has lived in the UK, Austria, and South America. Among Soma’s defining characteristics are curiosity, agility, creativity and fun. As a father of two and a company cultural ambassador, this remains a key philosophy for Soma.
When asked why he joined Cleanwatts, Soma replied pointedly: “Who wouldn’t want to be part of changing the world?”
Cleanwatts’ appointment of Soma Demeny is yet another important decision taken by the company in recent months. It reflects Cleanwatts’ commitment to building a healthy, vibrant and talented organization able to travel at market speed. Michael Pinto, Cleanwatts co-founder and CEO, describes Soma as “a world-class HR Leader, out-of-the-box thinker and a person that connects very easily with people through his critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and clear communication style.”
Soma will be responsible for designing and overseeing the company’s HR strategy, including recruitment and employee retention programs, evaluating and improving the company’s employee value proposition, training and development plans, as well as creating a safe workplace, healthy and inspirational culture as the organization continues to build a world in which clean energy is decentralized, digitalized, and democratized.
