September 21, 2023: Andrew Zogby, president of energy systems global for EnerSys, is to retire next year, the battery maker said on September 20.
Zogby, who will retire on March 31, will be succeeded by motive power global president Shawn O’Connell.
Zogby, known to colleagues as ‘Drew’, has spent the past 15 years at EnerSys and Alpha Technologies, which was acquired by EnerSys in 2018.
He also spent 30 years in broadband, telecoms, renewable energy and tech industries.
EnerSys president and CEO David Shaffer said: “Drew’s dedication, passion and commitment have played a pivotal role in the successful integration of Alpha Technologies, while managing the business through the unprecedented impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, resulting in significant revenue growth and positioning our company as an industry leader.”
O’Connell, who joined EnerSys in 2011, has held a number of posts in the company including VP of advanced systems and VP of reserve power sales and service for the Americas.
Shaffer said O’Connell’s prior experience and proven track record make him the ideal successor to build, inspire, and motivate teams.
EnerSys said it is launching a search for a successor to O’Connell.
