Over the last 2 years of interviewing clean energy CEO’s, Sean Kelly is our first with the background as a veteran energy trader. In fact, Sean has traded or managed traders for over 7 different companies in his career.
I brought Sean on the latest episode to speak about his background in energy trading and how that helped equip him for his role as co-founder and CEO of Amperon for the last 6 years. He describes Amperon as “the forecasting company for the energy transition.”
Sean had some unique things to share. Here are his B3P’s (Big 3 Points):
11:31 - The clean economy sector is where everything is headed – it’s not the “clean economy” sector anymore, just the economy. Once someone starts working in this sector, it’s hard to move elsewhere because this is a good spot to be.
18:39 - To be a great CEO means to inspire the right talent, bring them into your workplace and be a leader who demonstrates good leadership.
29:53 - If you want to keep a high level of performance as CEO, it’s important to take care of yourself. Spend time with your family and focus on both physical and mental well-being. Release any stress outside of work so you can start each day on a good note.
Thank you for your time, Sean.
