Partners in Performance, a global management consulting firm, has hired Eric Powell as a director in its North American energy transition practice.
Based in Dallas, Powell brings 25 years of experience in energy and utilities, with deep expertise leading growth strategy, business transformation, and modernization initiatives.
In his new role, Powell will lead a North American team of consultants focusing on energy transition engagements within the energy sector.
He joins Partners in Performance from AlixPartners, where he spent over six years as a senior director focusing on performance improvement and restructuring. Before that, he was a founding partner at Enovation Partners, an energy sector specialist consultancy (now Roland Berger).
Earlier in his career, Powell led the strategy and business performance practice at engineering and construction firm Black & Veatch. He was also previously a management consultant at Booz & Company (now Strategy&) and held several roles in strategic planning and production at TXU Energy.
Powell has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Jacksonville State University.
“Eric will be a tremendous client resource, and his appointment is a testament to success of the innovative, forward-thinking approach we are taking to build our practice in key areas such as power and oil and gas,” said Keith Russell, head of North America, Partners in Performance. “Eric will guide our clients using his rich experience developing revenue-enhancing strategies, developing leaders and global teams, and navigating new regulatory territory as they look at sustainable models of energy provision.”
Partners in Performance is headquartered in Sydney and has more than 600 consultants across six continents. The firm provides consulting services in strategy, operations, digital, supply chain, and organizational issues to clients in consumer goods and retail, financial services, mining and metals, oil and gas, and the public sector.
