The transaction is aligned with GEK TERNA’s strategy of becoming the leading diversified infrastructure group in Greece and Southeast Europe and will accelerate the Group’s path to a new growth era.

Demonstrating continuity in leadership, TERNA ENERGY’s Executive Chairman, Georgios Peristeris, and Chief Executive Officer, Emmanuel Maragoudakis, will continue in their current roles following completion of the transaction and support Masdar in leading the company in its next phase of growth.
