CEO - DEVELOP AND REALIZE THE SILVA GREEN FUEL PLANS
Silva is looking for a dynamic and energetic CEO to replace its current CEO who is about to retire. Silva Green Fuel is a pioneer and leading player in advanced sustainable biofuel, and aims to be among the first in the world to produce renewable biofuel from forest residues. The company has built a demonstration plant at Tofte to verify the technology, and is now working to mature the concept and technology for full scale commercial production. Final investment decision for the first full scale is expected early 2025 and production is to start in 2027. A full-scale plant is estimated to produce ~100 million liters of biofuel per year, and will contribute to reducing carbon emissions from the transport sector by 250 – 375 000 tons annually.
We are looking for an experienced CEO who will manage and drive the development of Silva Green Fuel towards full scale commercial production and operations of the first plant and then further profitable growth. The right candidate will have a combination of technology understanding and a sound business mindset, be able to drive the commercial development of the business, and develop the organization at the appropriate pace. Collaboration with stakeholders at local, national and international level is critical. The preferred candidate must have successful experience communicating and impacting at the right executive level.
Silva has already begun solving fundamental challenges and creating groundbreaking technological insight, but more challenges will come. To meet these head on we will need our next leader to develop and maintain enthusiasm within the organization, at Board level as well as with key partners. In addition, this role must foster a strong problem-solving team culture and collaborate well with and utilize the inherent competence in the Owners’ organizations to resolve our future challenges.
