EDF Trading, a subsidiary of EDF S.A., has appointed Christopher McKey as Head of Business Development North America.
McKey joins from Goldman Sachs where he has spent the past 10 years operating at a senior level in the firm’s Commodity division in Europe and Asia. Most recently he was Managing Director and Co-Head of Asia Corporate Sales based in Singapore.
McKey will focus on identifying and structuring larger and longer-term transactions in the energy trading space including but not limited to LPG, LNG, natural gas and electricity.
“Christopher has worked in the energy sector in the US, Europe and Asia and is ideally placed to develop EDF Trading’s footprint across North America as well as to originate commodity positions that link the North American energy market to the rest of the world. To this end, while Christopher will work mainly with our Houston office, he will have close contact with EDFT’s offices in Singapore, and London”, commented Philipp Büssenschütt, Chief Commercial Officer, Origination and Business Development.
“Having Christopher on board is a great opportunity for us. He brings with him an impressive breadth of knowledge and experience across the global energy sector and I’m looking forward to him bringing new ideas to the table”, added John Rittenhouse, CEO of EDF Trading.
