In his place, Kensa, the UK's only manufacturer of a full range of ground source heat pumps, has appointed Henry Casley, formerly CEO of Southern Electric Plc.
Commenting on the change, Kensa's Managing Director, Simon Lomax said "Kensa's prospects will be enhanced by Henry's considerable corporate experience and reflects the company's ambition to become the UK's largest supplier of ground source heat pumps. Further jobs are being created to support other new initiatives featuring significant corporate partners, including Scottish and Southern Energy Plc."
