Eos Energy Enterprises appoints Bornstein to board of directors

Edison-based Eos Energy Enterprises appointed Jeff Bornstein to its board of directors as of Sept. 7.

Bornstein, the former chief financial officer and vice chairman of General Electric and managing partner at Generation Capital Partners and Whipstick Ventures, is a longtime Eos champion and investor in Eos since 2019. Bornstein brings extensive experience advising clean energy companies through significant growth periods. In his 28 years at GE, Bornstein was instrumental in its effort to focus on its industrial core and mentored professionals that lead GE today.

“It is an exciting time to welcome Jeff to the Eos board. He joins Eos as we support America’s ambitious plan for a clean energy future,” Russ Stidolph, chairman of Eos, stated. “Jeff is a tremendous asset to Eos, as we continue to innovate and scale in a rapidly expanding market both domestically and globally.”

Bornstein also held senior leadership positions at GE Aircraft Engines, GE Plastics and GE Capital. As a partner and investor with numerous firms in the battery, climate tech and energy transition industries, he brings a wealth of knowledge and insights to support Eos as it looks to expand operations and capitalize on emerging opportunities.

“Eos’ mission to accelerate the transition to clean energy is more important than ever,” Bornstein said. “It’s an honor to be named to the board as the organization takes part in the rebirth of American manufacturing by building products that can enhance and fortify the 21st century energy grid.”
