Business energy supplier Yü Group has hired Paul Rawson as chief financial officer.
Rawson was chief executive of Engie’s energy solutions division until April. Before that he held roles as finance director at Engie and at Cofely prior to its acquisition by the French utility.
While Yü Group stated earlier this year it has “no intention” of entering the domestic retail market, Rawson’s hire may signal its intent to develop further services outside of selling a commodity.
Alongside business energy retail, Rawson at Engie oversaw provision of low carbon generation, energy software as a service and smart building technologies as well as Engie’s launch into the domestic retail market.
Yü Group chief executive Bobby Kalar said he and Rawson’s “financial and sector experience, together with his operational skill sets, will prove immensely beneficial to the Group as it continues to pursue its growth agenda”.
