David Blunt commented:
"SgurrEnergy is one of the UK’s big success stories in the renewable energy sector. I am delighted to be working alongside this dynamic and highly professional team in an economic sector which not only mitigates the dramatic threats from climate change but also brings real benefits to vulnerable communities, such as those struggling with inadequate energy supplies in many parts of the world. I greatly look forward to helping to drive forward SgurrEnergy’s continued growth and success."
SgurrEnergy’s Steve McDonald, joint founder and Implementation Director, said:
"We are delighted to have David on board with us at SgurrEnergy. The experience, expertise and international contacts he brings with him, will not only allow us to connect with new clients, in new markets, but help to further improve our relationships with existing ones. It is truly an exciting time at SgurrEnergy and we look forward to David being a part of our continued growth and success."
