Livingston James retained by Green Home Systems to appoint Commercial Director

Livingston James is partnered with Green Home Systems (GHS) to appoint their Commercial Director. GHS is a market leader in the installation of energy efficiency measures to domestic properties living in fuel poverty. The business was founded by entrepreneurial brothers Peter and Steven Easton in 2014, with the core purpose to eradicate fuel poverty and end climate change by making communities energy efficient and carbon neutral. GHS’s current focus is positively impacting Scotland and intends to support and drive this important initiative across the wider UK in time.

GHS operates in the regulatory backed Energy Company Obligation (ECO) market that underpins the UK’s long-term commitments to both reducing the carbon emissions from domestic properties and tackling fuel poverty. ECO obligates the UK energy companies to deliver Annual Bill Savings (ABS) across fuel poor households by funding the installation of appropriate measures such as insulation, solar PV systems, and air source heat pumps. In addition, GHS sells these measures into the private residential sales market and has ambitions to move into the social housing and commercial property market in time. GHS provide lead generation, installation, and compliance capabilities to enable energy companies to deliver their ECO obligations and in doing so, improve the standard of living for UK households living in fuel poverty. The company also has a specific focus on the use of recycled materials in the insulation measures it installs.

In 2019, GHS secured funding from Circularity Capital, an investor passionate about accelerating growth and innovation in the circular economy, to expand GHS’s proposition and diversify their product and customer base. Following several challenging years of managing the complexities brought by Covid, GHS are now able to drive on with their purpose. Over the next 24 months, GHS has an ambition to treble the revenue size of the business and has clear and achievable strategies to deliver this. As such it is now looking to appoint a Commercial Director to ensure these targets are met.

The successful professional will work closely with the Managing Director to deliver against the shareholder’s expectations and will be wholly accountable for accelerating the growth of the business. This is an exceptional opportunity to make a positive impact within your community, as well as help to play a part in eradicating fuel poverty and improving the green agenda. Furthermore, the Commercial Director will be a fundamental component in the successful scale and sale of GHS.
