Dave Cockshott has swapped Inenco for SmartestEnergy. From November, the former Npower director will take on the newly created role of chief commercial officer at Smartest, with responsibility for all customer groups at the firm.
Announcing the hire, Robert Groves, CEO of SmartestEnergy, said:
“This is a critical role for SmartestEnergy and Dave brings the commercial leadership that we will need in an increasingly competitive and complex market. I’m sure he will have a big impact on our business.”
Cockshott said Smartest has been “at the forefront of changes across the industry”.
“With new investment in people and systems, the company has a real opportunity to deliver a better energy system for customers, helping the UK transition to a low-carbon economy and provide growth for their shareholder,” he added. “I am really looking forward to starting on this next challenge.”
Inenco has been aiming to cut business costs in recent months, restructuring its Direct business.
