Directorate Appointments



Entu (UK) plc, the home improvement group providing energy efficient products and services to homeowners in the UK, announces the following directorate appointments.


The Group announces that Geoff Stevens has today stepped down as Chief Financial Officer and assumed the role of Non-executive director. Geoff will be appointed Chairman of the Audit Committee after the AGM.  Following an extensive external search Neill Skinner has joined the Board with immediate effect as CFO.


The Board had previously intended the CFO role to be part time, supported by a central finance function and other executive management. The Board now believes the role needs to be full time, and confirms that Neill Skinner has been appointed on that basis. The Board are delighted that they will retain the knowledge and experience of Geoff Stevens in his new role.


Neill has extensive experience of financial leadership roles, having previously been CFO at AIM-listed Clean Air Power and having held senior financial roles at British Nuclear Fuels plc. He is a Chartered Accountant who began his career at PwC and EY. Neill also has a strong commercial background, having been International Development Director and then Strategy Director at Speedy Hire PLC before joining Clean Air Power.


Andrew Corless, currently Managing Director of Entu Energy Services, which comprises the Group's installation business Job Worth Doing and Astley Facades, has also joined the Executive Board as Chief Operating Officer. Andrew has been with Entu since September 2014 during which time he led Job Worth Doing and the growth of corporate and commercial contracts.


Andrew's promotion reflects the importance to Group strategy of the development of long term corporate contracts, and of Entu's installation platform, a key differentiator for the Group.


Andrew Corless is interested in 20,000 ordinary shares in Entu (UK) plc.


Entu will announce results for the year ended 31 October 2015 on 29 January 2016, which it expects to be in line with expectations.
