Tell us about your role and what you enjoy about it
My role ranges from overseeing simple meter installations to large scale retail and housing developments. I enjoy liaising with suppliers and clients to manage the completion of projects, no matter how big or small.
What are the big challenges and opportunities the industry is facing at the moment?
The rigidity of certain suppliers can sometimes be a challenge and we work closely with clients to find the best fit solutions for their specific requirements.
Explaining the requirements of the new P272 legislation, which requires all non-half hourly supplies to be settled as half hourly, has required a significant amount of work. Keeping our clients informed at all stages is important for a smooth customer experience.
The de-regulation of the water market offers some exciting opportunities for clients to switch supplier and make savings.

Favourite place in the world?
I have been fortunate enough to travel to places such as Las Vegas, Florida and Japan but family holidays to Nefyn in North Wales (particularly the Ty Coch Pub) where I have been going since I was a toddler are always memorable.
