The Kensa Group has announced changes to its senior management team and additional business services as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.
James Standley has been promoted to Managing Director of Kensa Heat Pumps, whilst Dr Matthew Trewhella will step up to the same role for Kensa Contracting, the specialist in-house installation business, which launched of a dedicated website earlier in the year.
Commenting on the changes, Kensa Group CEO Simon Lomax said: “Having spent 20 years promoting the benefits of ground source heat pumps, it is encouraging that many stakeholders finally recognise their strategic importance. Regulation is now replacing subsidy as the main market driver and the Kensa Group is remarkably well-placed to take advantage. James and Matthew have been heavily involved in the creation of two exceptional businesses and their plans for the future will ensure Kensa continues to flourish.”
Alongside the management changes, Kensa has announced the launch of a new Group business, Kensa Utilities, which will operate alongside a number of partners to fund, own and maintain heat pump assets. In addition, the Group is developing alternative business models, including a ‘heat as a service’ offer, designed to reduce upfront capital costs.
James Standley, Managing Director of Kensa Heat Pumps, said: “From 1999 Kensa Heat Pumps has been influential in the UK’s steady transition to a low carbon economy, the Group’s structure is now poised to help the country fulfil its sustainability commitments and enter a new phase of clean energy generation. I am proud to be at the helm of the manufacturing business, and look forward to our next chapter of growth as a Group.”
