Medina will formally succeed Catto from 1 November.
Gavin McAlpine, chairmain at RES, said Catto’s contribution to the business had been “exceptional” and lauded not just his contribution to RES, but the renewables sector as a whole.
Medina meanwhile said his focus going forward would be on bolstering RES’ project development and support services functions.
“There is a clear opportunity to consolidate our position as a leading Asset Manager and O&M provider, plus, capitalise on the significant market opportunities in our business geographies. RES has such a unique culture, heritage and people, I am very much looking forward to taking up the position,” he said.
