Anesco has appointed energy sector specialist Mark Futyan as Chief Executive Officer.
Mark joins Anesco as part of a longstanding CEO succession plan for Kevin Mouatt, who will step down at the end of March. The pair have been working closely together, to ensure a smooth transition of leadership and Kevin will continue to support the business in a non-executive capacity.
With a career within the energy industry that spans more than 20 years, Mark joins Anesco from Centrica, parent company of British Gas, where he most recently held the position of Distributed Power Systems Director. Mark was responsible for Centrica’s international power generation and storage portfolio, along with strategy, change and market innovation across the broader C&I energy services division. He holds a Chemical Engineering degree from Cambridge and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
Kevin Mouatt leaves Anesco to take up a new position in April, following a successful four-year tenure that has seen sustained growth for Anesco’s O&M and ECO divisions, as well as the development of the UK’s first subsidy-free solar farm ‘Clayhill’ – a landmark achievement for the industry that was met with worldwide acclaim.
Commenting on his appointment, Mark said: “I am delighted to join Anesco, a company with a passion for innovation that’s never afraid to break new ground and which has a unique capability to support the UK’s transition to a low carbon future.”
He continued: “The board and I would like to thank Kevin for all he has done and we will be looking to build on these foundations moving forward, with ambitious plans for growth and driving a cleaner, greener future. Anesco remains committed to supporting our clients to realise the full commercial and environmental potential of renewable energy, while strengthening our position as a leading player in the industry.”
Kevin commented: “I have very much enjoyed my time at Anesco and it has been a privilege to lead on projects such as Clayhill, which have been a gamechanger for the industry. I am delighted to continue my involvement with Anesco as a Non-Executive board member.
“Spearheading the use of 1500v string inverters, which was a first for Europe, is something I am particularly proud of. So too are the industry-leading advancements we have made to the O&M business, including in the area of predictive maintenance, and our stringent health and safety and efficiency processes.
He added: “People have always been at the heart of Anesco and I thank the whole team for their hard work and dedication and wish them well for the future.”
Established in Reading in 2010, Anesco is a UK market leader in renewable energy and energy efficiency. The company has developed more than 100 solar farms to date, while its renewables operation and maintenance arm has nearly 1GW of renewable energy under management.
