UTILITIES management experts, eyebright expect business revenue to more than double in the next three years.

Established in 2009, the Glasgow based consultancy advise clients on how to minimise energy overheads while strengthening their sustainability credentials.  

In the last 24 months, eyebright have saved customers including SMEs and multi-site PLCs, £83million through effective procurement strategies.

To support its expansion strategy, Tim Partridge has been appointed Director of Energy Markets. With more than 20 years’ experience, including time spent at SSE and E.On, he will strengthen eyebright’s ability to innovate products for large energy consuming businesses by giving them access to wholesale markets. 

Managing Director, Jamie Newall said: “We are planning for huge growth and with that has come some important new team updates.

“Tim is a recognised expert industry commentator with a strong analytical understanding of the energy market and excellent relationships with suppliers. 

“His addition to our rapidly expanding team is a real coup and allows us to provide further support to organisations with a complex range of procurement and management needs.

“These are exciting times for the business as we continue delivering the best solutions available for our customers.”

Through an effective sustainable energy management strategy, eyebright expects to remove over 19 million tons of C02e from the environment over the next 36 months. That’s the equivalent of over 400 UK SME businesses becoming carbon neutral.

New recruit, Tim Partridge said: “The company has grown from strength to strength, and there are huge opportunities going forward.

“I hope my industry experience will provide clients with additional support, market intelligence and enhance the range of services we offer.”  

eyebright predict its head count to double over the next 36 months, having already expanded its water auditing, climate change levy and energy procurement divisions.

Established last year, the water auditing department has achieved refunds and savings for schools in the north-west of England of over £450,000 and is forecast to save schools over £2 million over the next 12 months.

To further support its expansion strategy, eyebright has seen the appointment of new Commercial Director, Chris Quinn, and the promotion of Jon Reeves to become Head of Energy Solutions and Jo Buckley to Head of Supplier Relationships.
