Stefan Dohler new Head of BD Asset Optimisation and Trading

Stefan Dohler has been appointed Head of Business Division Asset Optimisation and Trading (AOT). He will assume his post on April 1, succeeding Harald von Heyden who is leaving Vattenfall July 1. As Head of AOT, Stefan Dohler will be a part of Vattenfall’s Executive Group Management, EGM.  

Stefan Dohler will be responsible for 650 co-workers working to optimise the dispatch of all of Vattenfall’s generation assets - when and how the plants generate electricity - and for hedging the production output. AOT also conducts trading of energy commodities and sourcing of fuels and carbon credits on wholesale markets.  

- Stefan Dohler has a long experience from the energy business and will bring a lot of experience from inside and outside Vattenfall into his new position. I am sure that he will develop the work with Asset Optimisation and Trading further and will add to competence and variety in Vattenfall's Executive Group Management, the EGM. I am looking forward to our co-operation, says Øystein Løseth, CEO of Vattenfall.  

Stefan Dohler comes from a current position as Head of Controlling within Business Division Production. He has previously held positions such as Head of Vattenfall’s distribution and transmission operations in Germany and CFO of Vattenfall Europe AG.  He has a master in both engineering and business administration, and has worked in the energy business for 20 years.  

- After more than ten years in many parts of the Vattenfall organisation it feels natural to take on a new role in the international work with our company. Asset Optimisation and Trading is a challenging and fast developing field in a dynamic environment. I am looking forward to contributing to the further development of AOT and Vattenfall. I am curious to meet my new colleagues and team, says Stefan Dohler.
