CHICAGO, April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- E.ON Energy Services (EES) today announced the addition of several key members to its team, with the hiring of a new vice president of Business Development and several regional account managers.

"Kurt brings us tons of experience, know-how and creativity. E.ON's vision is to be an innovator, cost reducer and thought leader and not just an O&M service provider.

Several worked previously for either owners or OEMs and bring the best industry practices to help us better serve clients. Their addition allows EES to dramatically expand its service territory and reach every major wind corridor in the country," Day said.
