Colin spent much of his career in commercial roles in the energy industry where, before taking early retirement in 2013, he was responsible for the marketing of gas and electricity, plus associated services, to EDF Energy’s larger business customers. The role encompassed marketing strategy, new product development, added-value services, market research and marketing communications. During his time with the business, it grew from being a relatively minor player to the leading supplier, by volume, to the business market.
Prior to joining the Company, Colin worked in commercial and operational roles with TI Drynamels (industrial coatings); Creda (domestic appliance manufacture and servicing); Servowarm (central heating installation and service); Warwicker Associates (marketing consultancy).
Away from the office, Colin is a big sports fan, playing hockey and cricket and, as a genuine Mancunian, watching Manchester United courtesy of Sky and BT Sport. As well as being a Trustee of InspireAll, Colin devotes much of his time to helping run Radlett Cricket Club and is also a Trustee of West Herts Hockey Club.
