Green electricity company hooks up to new director

Usually an expert at securing media coverage for itself, a rather high profile green electricity company from Gloucestershire has quietly appointed a new senior director.

No official release has been issued or statement made by Ecotricity, one of Stroud biggest employers, but it now has a new financial director on its board.

Claire Burden has form in the energy sector, joining the Five Valleys' business from her role as head of finance at Ovo Energy - a company founded in Gloucestershire but now headquartered in Bristol.

The chartered accountant's Linkedin page describes her as having "a breadth of commercial experience across a variety of sectors, focussed on helping stressed, distressed and high growth companies achieve their goals, whether it be fundraising, M&A work or internal support".

Her CV also includes two years as interim director of finance at Manchester-based lawyers Slater and Gordon.

Ecotricity, famously founded by Dale Vince, was featured in the Punchline-Gloucester.com annual Gloucestershire's 100 Biggest Employers 2019, at number 19 with 840 staff.
