MEXICO - Katya Somohano Silva assumed the position of general manager of Iberdrola Mexico, replacing Enrique Alba, with the responsibility of leading a new phase focused on the development of clean energy projects.

"Iberdrola Mexico begins a new phase in the country with the objective of supporting the industry in its decarbonization and emissions reduction goals," said Somohano.

Although Iberdrola Mexico sold 13 power generation plants to a Mexican fund, the company still has a portfolio of renewable projects distributed in several states of the country.

"We will maintain our operational excellence, we will execute the company's renewable growth plan. We reaffirm our commitment to Mexico and to the goal of building, together, a more sustainable and green future," she said.

Ignacio Galán, chairman of the Iberdrola Group, noted that after an excellent track record inside and outside Iberdrola Mexico, Katya Somohano assumed the leadership of the company at the head of a young and diverse, but very experienced team.

Katya Somohano is originally from Mexico City. She holds a law degree from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and a master's degree in law from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

In 2018 she completed the Senior Management program at the Instituto Panamericano de Alta Dirección de Empresa (IPADE) and attended the Innovation Program at Harvard Business School at Harvard University.
