Ian McCaig joins First Utility as CEO

Warwick, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 26, 2012 -- In January 2012, Britain's leading independent energy supplier First Utility (http://www.first-utility.com/) announced the appointment of Ian McCaig as its new Chief Executive Officer.

McCaig is well known for his role at lastminute.com, where as Chief Operating Officer he grew sales at the business from £500m in 2003 to almost £1.5 billion by 2005.

Energy supplier First Utility has approximately 80,000 customers, and was recently named as one of the fastest growing privately owned companies in the UK in the latest prestigious 'Fast Track 100'.

First Utility co-founder and former CEO Mark Daeche, who assumes the role of Non-Executive Director, commented: "We're delighted to have Ian on board; he brings with him an exceptional track record, particularly across the online and telecoms sector. His experience of managing fast-growth companies will be a real asset to the company. First Utility has experienced rapid growth over the last three years and I look forward to this continuing as we provide an increasingly robust proposition to the outdated practices of the Big Six energy firms that dominate the UK's energy supply market."

Ian McCaig added: "First Utility has stood out as an innovator in today's UK energy marketplace from the start and there is a huge opportunity for it to shake up the energy supply marketplace here in the UK and make a real and positive difference for consumers, both in terms of their control over their energy use and in reducing their bills. The next year will see us introduce new and better platforms to improve customer experience and launch a range of new services. I am particularly excited about our work with US-based energy efficiency company Opower, which will give people access to unique tools and information regarding their energy consumption and will empower them to make real changes to the way they use energy."
