Pinnacle Names Duncan Davies As CEO

Pinnacle Renewable Energy has appointed Duncan Davies as Chief Executive Officer, effective November 1replacing Rob McCurdy, whose retirement plans were announced earlier this year. Davies will continue to serve on the company’s Board of Directors, which he joined in April 2020.

Davies comments, “I have known the company for many years and have long admired their sense of ambition and entrepreneurship. I am excited by the opportunity to lead a company of Pinnacle’s stature in the next stage of its development and look forward to helping build significant and sustainable value for its shareholders, customers, employees and the communities in which it operates.” 

Davies will be based at the company’s headquarters in Richmond, BC.
