Offshore wind developer Ørsted recently welcomed to its New Jersey team Davon McCurry as deputy head of market and government affairs, New Jersey; Tom Suthard, stakeholder relations manager; and Kareen Anderson, senior human resource business partner.
In addition to these new hires, Ørsted has relocated its Atlantic City, N.J., office to a larger space and are finishing the fit-out of a new office in Newark, N.J., which will house the North American Digital Operations headquarters.
“We are growing our presence in New Jersey by hiring more employees and expanding our footprint throughout the state by opening offices to house our team members and to support our planning and development needs,” said Maddy Urbish, Ørsted’s head of government affairs and policy for New Jersey, in announcing the moves.
McCurry, who is based in the Atlantic City office, helps develop and implement strategies to ensure the successful advancement of existing projects, and shape Ørsted’s position and standing in the state. He focuses on outreach and information sharing with state and local government entities, as well as business and civic organizations focused on economic development, job training and job creation.
Also based in Atlantic City, Suthard is the on-the-ground point person for public interaction at all levels. He is responsible for public engagement and the dissemination of information surrounding Ørsted, its Ocean Wind 1 project and the company’s plans to develop offshore wind off the southern New Jersey coast.
Based in the new Newark Digital Operations headquarters, Anderson works across the organization as part of a team that is building and scaling the human resources department to support Ocean Wind 1 and other clean energy projects in development.
