Roy M. Kolader

Managing Director & Board Member

Roy Kolader began his career in marketing and served as Consul General of the Republic of Suriname to Holland from the mid-1980 to early 1990's.

After a stint as the European representative for Global Trade Links, Inc. responsible for the Caribbean and Latin America, he joined DELTA Caribbean as the Managing Director in Curacao for the subsidiary of one of Holland's largest multi-utility. DELTA Caribbean was the Caribbean Basin's leader in the development, ownership, operation and management of wind farms prior to NuCapital's purchase of all operating assets in April, 2009. Under Kolader's leadership, it was active in a variety of management and business development services in the field of wind power generation in Central and South America and the Caribbean. In 2003, Kolader joined the Steering Committee of the Caribbean Community and Common Market ("Caricom") for Caribbean Renewable Energy Development Program, representing the private sector in the region. In addition, he has served on numerous corporate and regulatory boards and commissions in the target region. In addition, he serves on the Latin America Wind Energy Association (LAWEA) Board of Directors and chairs the Advocacy and Outreach Work Committee. Over the past ten years he led DELTA Caribbean's development of wind farm projects in Jamaica, Guyana and Colombia. DELTA Caribbean developed and built Curacao's first utility-scale wind farm of 9 MW in 2000 at Playa Kanoa, now owned and operated by NuCapital Inc. and has been operating successfully at one of the world's highest capacity factors since commissioning.

Mr. Kolader's educational background includes a Bachelor's Degree in Business Economy from Hogeschool Groningen in The Netherlands. He assumes responsibility for leading NuCapital's development strategy identical to that which he has led for the past twelve years, albeit on a broader scale. His continuing leadership on Caricom's renewable energy initiatives and as a corporate member of regional wind energy organizations such as the Latin American Wind Energy Association is uniquely complementary to the experience and skill sets of NuCapital's professionals. Since May 2012 Kolader has been appointed member of the supervisory Board of the CIBC First Caribbean International Bank, Curaçao. He continues to reside full-time in Willemstad, Curaçao.
