Executive Bio
Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Symbion Power, LLC, Paul Hinks is the driving force behind the company. He has spent his life in the power industry where he has been responsible for the construction of power plants, transmission lines and substations. His career spans 30 years and in that period, he has worked in the USA, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Since 2003 Paul has been at the forefront of US wartime contracting efforts.
In 2010, Symbion Power was awarded two large U.S. government-funded contracts building distribution lines and substations throughout Tanzania. The following year, Mr. Hinks successfully negotiated Symbion's acquisition of a 120MW power plant in Dar es Salaam, thereby concluding Symbion's first power asset acquisition. The company now has a pivotal position as the leading firm of its type in Tanzania and is the United States' largest owner of power assets in Africa.
Mr. Hinks continues to further the company's efforts in Tanzania and is at present focused on an expansion program of the Symbion Power Plant's capacity. He is actively working to build Symbion's operations in new markets in Africa including Kenya, Nigeria, Malawi, Ghana, and Rwanda.
Prior to bringing Symbion to Africa, under Mr. Hinks' leadership during 2005-2008, Symbion won nine contracts across Iraq, erecting hundreds of kilometers of 400kV and 132kV transmission and distribution lines and completing twelve substations. In 2007, Mr. Hinks expanded Symbion's operations into Afghanistan where Symbion won a bid to build a 100MW power plant in Kabul.
Born and raised in England, Mr. Hinks trained in Manchester as an engineering apprentice for the state power generation and transmission utility of the U.K., the Central Electricity Generating Board, with whom he obtained his college engineering qualifications in 1980.
Paul is the Chairman of the Corporate Council on Africa. When he is not in Africa or the Middle East, Mr. Hinks splits his time between Symbion headquarters in Washington, D.C., and New York City, where he lives with his wife.
