Jurjen Geerts

Chief Financial Officer

The numbers guy, Jurjen has been using his BCA and MBA at the sharp end of energy innovation for over 15 years. “It’s not just dollars and cents, it’s kilowatt hours, location factors, demand charges, everything. It’s a privilege to be part of a team that’s making sense of all those numbers for businesses who just want to reduce and have more control of their electricity costs.”. In his spare time, Jurj also likes to ride Mountainbikes. Blackcurrent Ltd would like to accept full credit and responsibility for the sight of Jurj in bike shorts. You're welcome New Zealand.

Adam's wealth of experience and pragmatic approach to getting the job done is what drives the company forward with supremely confident purpose.
