The 2018 National Energy Efficiency Awards, ampered by the wonderful Sir Lenny Henry, took place on Friday, 7th September 2018 in Birmingham. What a wonderful evening; an evening spent getting together with the best of the best that this industry has to offer.
Applause, Excitement and a Standing Ovation when Ryan Howard, our Group Director was called on Stage and announced as the Business Development Director of the Year 2018. It is a huge achievement, the result of many years of hard work.
Ryan has been involved in the set up, development and running of City Energy Network since its inception in 2011; at a time of severe adversity - the introduction of the ECO and Green Deal initiative, unknown territory for the industry overall.
Ryan ably led the Board in its development of a strategic re-think for City Energy Network's delivery profile to the benefit of our employees, our local community, our ECO clients and ultimately our end users and customers. His ability to consider market trends and plan ahead has enabled City Energy Network to become one of the early adopters of ECO Flex in 2017, develop and implement a unique finance solution and identified upcoming obstacles through challenging and costly legislative developments involving Consumer Rights, Electronic Marketing and General Data Protection Regulation.
This forward planning and considered tactic has ensured City Energy Network and its partners secure a long term pipeline of work for the security of our team members, partners and customers into ECO3.
Congratulations to all the worthy winners of this nationwide award. We are proud to be working with you, upgrading homes and alleviating fuel poverty one home at a time - cause Every Home Counts.
