PERNIX (FIJI) LIMITED – January 1, 2015 – The Kinoya Power Plant 35 MW Expansion Project and was recently awarded the new 11/33kV Substation contract from Fiji Electric Authority. After a close evaluation of this project and Pernix’s future plans to develop in the Pacific Rim, an organizational restructure of Pernix (Fiji) Limited was necessary to ensure that the current operation, future perspectives and success will be supported with defined roles and responsibilities of the management team in Fiji and the Pacific.

In result of the above, starting 01 December 2014, Michel El-Rahi assumed the new role of Vice President – Business Development & Corporate Affairs. Michel will continue to be with the Pernix family in Fiji and his main objective is to grow our footprint in Fiji and the Pacific.

Assuming Michel’s role as General Manager is Ledua Colati, who was assigned as the Acting General Manager. Ledua will manage the day-to-day operations with the company and will report to Nidal Zayed (CEO & President, Pernix Group, Inc.). Michel El-Rahi will continue to guide corporate affairs and will work with Ledua in that regard.

In-addition, as of 01 January 2015, Abhyash Chand was promoted from Financial Controller to Regional Director of Finance. His role will be an integral part of the growth initiatives and efforts of the company going forward. His line of reporting will be to the Chief Financial Officer.
