Holland Power Services provides a wide range of power services to North American utilities, industrial companies, and wind farms, from installation to testing to maintenance and repair. Holland Power Services was acquired by Alectra Energy Solutions Inc. in January 2021. Alectra Energy Solutions is a subsidiary of Alectra Inc., a leading distribution and integrated energy solutions provider with assets in the range of $5.5 billion dollars.

Based minutes outside the provincial capital of Fredericton, New Brunswick, with branches in Quebec, Ontario and Maine, Holland specializes in emergency power restoration. Clients include many utilities across the US, Eastern Canada, the Caribbean and beyond. Since its establishment in 1996, Holland Power Services has grown into a company with more than 100 full time employees and several hundred contractors. It has become one of the largest independent power restoration services companies in North America. 

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President will lead the development, implementation and execution of Holland Power Services’ strategic direction and ensure its overall success and continued growth. You will provide leadership, guidance and direction to the management team and the broader organization and drive the accomplishment of all established strategic plans and objectives in accordance with the company’s vision, mission, and values. You will build and manage highly constructive relationships with both internal and external stakeholders and promote seamless and consistent communications across the organization. You will be a role model who sets the “tone at the top” in fostering a culture of safety, performance, continuous improvement, professionalism, and customer service excellence.

As the ideal candidate, you are a dynamic and high functioning business leader with a respected track record of success and a deep understanding of the broad range of functions and accountabilities within a multi-stakeholder environment. You have a post-secondary degree in Business or Engineering and an extensive track record of success in progressive leadership, with at least 5 years’ experience at the executive management level, ideally within energy or utility industries.  With proven operational and financial acumen, you are adept at maximizing efficiencies and profitability through well-developed business plans, policies and systems and you consistently look for process improvements and efficiencies and develop strategies for improving organizational effectiveness by cultivating innovation and change to ensure the business continually evolves. You can successfully implement initiatives that will have a positive impact on business performance, and you excel at anticipating and positively responding to evolving customer requirements and market conditions.

As the President, you will lead the way in delivering on Holland Power Services’ strategic objectives, making the company even stronger and poised for additional growth in a North American context. An understanding of regulatory environments, familiarity with utility customers and a fundamental knowledge of electrical distribution systems would be valuable.
