China Hydroelectric names interim CEO

Energy developer China Hydroelectric Corp. has appointed an interim chief executive officer and assigned roles for the members of its board of directors, HydroWorld.com has learned.

The company made the announcement at its Oct. 15 meeting, which followed the ousting of former CEO and founder John D. Kuhns earlier this month.

China Hydroelectric's board has selected You-Su Lin as its interim CEO, with Amit Gupta serving as the board's chairman.

Gupta joins Shadron Lee Stastney on the company's compensation committee, while Moonkyung Kim, Jui Kian Lim and Yong Cao will serve on China Hydroelectric's governance and nominating committees.

The company also says that its chief financial officer, Liya Chen -- alongside Lin, Gupta, Lim and Chen -- will lead a transition committee to address matters related to the transition of the new board, cost reductions, and the search for a permanent CEO.

China Hydroelectric owns and operates small hydroelectric projects throughout China, with a total combined capacity of 548 MW spread across 26 hydropower facilities.
