Energy and Utility Skills' chief steps down


Energy and Utility Skills’ chief executive, Nick Ellins, will step down at the end of July.

Energy and Utility Skills chair, Jan Ward CBE, said Ellins (pictured) was keeping to a five-year commitment to the post declared on taking it up.

Ellins, she said, has take the organisation from a primarily government-funded council to “a fully commercially independent business that is now recognised and respected for its knowledge of human capital, and its ability to make change happen through trusted collaboration with central and devolved governments, policy makers, regulators, unions, utility companies and the supply chain.”

Ellins said: "The organisation is in an excellent position, with a talented team, financial sustainability and the support of its Board and sector to continue growing and supporting the gas, power, water and waste management industries on their future path.”
