Inenco, one of the UK’s largest third party intermediaries, has hired Richard Harrison as chief executive. He replaces Gary Stokes.
Harrison was CEO of boiler installer Help Link until May this year, following its integration into Homeserve, which bought the business in 2017.
He has held senior positions at reputation.com (as managing director) and webuyanycar.com (as chief operating officer). Harrison also had a stint as SME sales director for telco O2.
Harrison said he looked forward to entering the energy sector. “It’s an exciting market to be in, with great opportunities for the business,” he said.
Inenco hired outgoing CEO Gary Stokes in October 2016 to replace interim chief Patrick Macdonald, who remains the company’s chairman.
“Gary Stokes has led the company’s transformational change over the last two years, including the investment in an ambitious new technology strategy and the appointment of a new leadership team,” said Macdonald. “Gary has given us a sustainable platform for growth and now hands over to Richard.”
