Edison-based Eos Energy Storage announced Tuesday it has added new leadership to industrialize and scale its aqueous zinc battery solution.

The clean energy company said Joe Mastrangelo has been named CEO, Kevin Walsh was named senior commercial adviser and Mack Treece was chosen as chief financial officer.

The trio will support Eos’ growth as it deploys its products on four continents and builds out manufacturing in the U.S.

Prior to being named CEO, Mastrangelo served as board adviser for Eos since August 2018. Before Eos, he was CEO and president of Gas Power Systems for GE Power. He also served as CEO of GE’s Power Conversion business.

“It is clear to me that storage is the key to scaling clean energy faster,” Mastrangelo said. “Eos has established a solid foundation of learning and has optimized a lithium alternative solution that is ready to scale and meet the world’s rapidly growing demand for energy storage. I’m proud to lead this team at an exciting and crucial moment for the company.”

Walsh will be responsible for guiding the company’s strategy and commercial operations. Most recently, he was the managing director and head of U.S. renewable energy at GE Energy Financial Services. He’s also held various roles in power, international, capital markets and asset management during his tenure at GE EFS. He also served as the senior operating partner at Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners.

“For renewables to scale faster, we need storage that is cost-competitive and as reliable as existing energy solutions,” Walsh said. “The new Eos Aurora solution is uniquely positioned to compete and disrupt the sector worldwide. It is a solution the world urgently needs.”

Prior to Eos, Treece was the chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Viridity Energy Solutions Inc. before being named its CEO.

“At this key point in Eos’ journey, I’m excited to help the company invest in growth as we build GWh per year production capability and expand our operations in the field,” he said. “With accessible materials, simple design and automated manufacturing, we’re well-positioned to drive down battery costs and deploy our systems around the world. We’re ready to scale.”
