PSC Consulting, an international consultancy dedicated to the energy and utility sectors, has appointed Ashley Grohn as managing director of its Asia Pacific business unit.

In his new role, Ashley Grohn leads the firm’s teams across New Zealand (where PSC Consulting was established in 1995), Australia, South East Asia and the Pacific. The region houses the lion’s share of the company’s 250-strong headcount worldwide.

Grohn brings more than 25 years of engineering and advisory experience to the role, nearly all of which he gained in the consulting landscape. Most recently at Mott MacDonald, he was the firm’s Energy Leader for the ANZ region, and before that, he was a principal consultant at counterpart Jacobs.

Earlier in his career, Grohn spent over seventeen years at Aurecon, where he latterly led teams working across the energy and renewable energy segments.

“I am excited to join the PSC Consulting team, which for more than 25 years has been tackling the thorniest power and electricity problems for some of the most prominent industry players,” said Grohn.

Grohn will lead the firm’s full suite of offerings across Asia Pacific, including: repurposing and/or retiring coal capacity, renewables like wind, solar, and hydropower, the development of microgrids, decarbonisation of operations, hydrogen, as well as storage and distributed energy.

PSC Consulting also helps its clients with technical services, such as designing, deploying and maintaining HVDC projects, and technology expertise, including the build and deployment of operational technologies to help optimise grid operations and improve safety.

As part of his role, Grohn joins the global leadership team of PSC Consulting, which is led by CEO Alex Boyd and further consists of among others fellow regional managing directors Kevin Cheung (North America) and Tim Miles (UK and Europe).

“Ashley is already very familiar with the key drivers and client challenges in energy markets across the Asia Pacific region, especially at the confluence with decarbonisation and climate change. His skills and experience will be a great asset for our clients as we support them in achieving the best possible outcomes,” said Boyd.
