Fresh off receiving a major honor for its work advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the energy workforce ALLY Energy is making moves to bring its offerings to reach even more companies, leaders, and job seekers. ALLY Energy works with forward-thinking companies across the sector.

“With energy jobs, investments, and demands skyrocketing, it’s no surprise our talent platform for the energy sector needs to grow as well,” says ALLY Energy CEO Katie Mehnert. “I’m thrilled to welcome new members and to lift others to new roles in the organization.”

Kevin McMinn, an accomplished executive with decades of experience in energy companies, will take on the role of chief operations officer. “Throughout my over 30 years with startups, turnarounds, and mergers across multiple industries, I’ve always focused on people and culture as the foundation of a healthy organization,” he says. “Joining the Ally Energy team, and working with Katie, offers an opportunity to not only leverage my passions but also help empower others on the road to transformation.”

Carlos Da Silva will serve as director of culture and sustainable solutions for programming and client projects. Two members of the ALLY team, meanwhile, have been promoted to new roles. Fred Navarre is now vice president of marketing, communications, and client engagement. “It is an honor to be entrusted with such an important leadership role in the company, and I am grateful for the opportunity to take on this new challenge,” he says. “I am excited to work closely with the team and our clients to help drive ALLY forward and achieve our ambitious goals.” Jo Madriaga, formerly executive assistant to the CEO is now chief of staff.

The new team takes office just days after ALLY Energy was honored as a 2023 Outstanding Diverse Organization by the Houston Business Journal. “We celebrate this with our clients and the many of you who are making the change we need in our workplaces, communities, and in society at large,” Mehnert said in a LinkedIn post after accepting the honor at a celebration.

ALLY Energy is the online workforce development platform for companies seeking talent and professionals seeking work in the global energy industry. Many leading energy and climate tech companies have joined ALLY. Founded to bring diversity, equity, and inclusion to the energy sector, ALLY is based in Houston, Texas and it is an inaugural member of Greentown Labs Houston.
