Simon Brod
 Head of Origination
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Amsterdam
THNK connection: THNKer , AMS Class 11

I was referred to THNK by Menno van Dijk.


I have deep experience in the energy sector, including engineering, operational, and commercial roles. I originate complex transactions in wholesale energy, and have extended Vattenfall's business into new areas.


A British citizen, I have lived and worked in France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Bangladesh. I hold an engineering degree from the University of Cambridge and an MBA from the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussees. I am a Sainsbury Management Fellow.


I believe the next 5 years will see a widespread adoption of new technologies which will revolutionise the way energy is distributed and sold. I am, currently, at a cross-roads in my career, and aim to put my expertise to work improving energy supply and alleviating energy poverty.
