Katerina is the Commercial and Business Development Director of Clean Planet Energy, a UK-based company with a mission to remove over 1M tons of waste plastic every year from the environment working towards Clean Air and Clean Oceans.
Her continuous personal development journey has enabled her to advance her career rapidly and complete successfully two career transitions. The first transition was within the Upstream sector of the Oil & Gas industry while working for the Chinese National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC International), from solely technical roles to commercial and business leadership positions.
The second and most recent career transition was achieved by shifting sectors while still within the Energy industry from Oil & Gas to Renewables and Green Technology. She is strongly committed to delivering strategic partnerships, creating a motivating culture with a vision and passion for sustainability, innovation, and success.
Katerina holds a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Aberdeen and an MBA from London Business School focusing on Business Strategy & Entrepreneurship.
