Guernsey Electricity has appointed David Hipple as the company’s new finance director.
Mr Hipple joined Guernsey Electricity in January to focus on developing the company’s investment business plans and will take up the role of finance director in July on the retirement of Iain Limond, the current finance director.
As Finance Director, Mr Hipple will be in charge of the development and delivery of financial policy and the direction and control of all aspects of financial management and reporting including the enhancement of financial processes and controls.
Mr Hipple has over 25 years of experience in financial management in the UK and internationally having worked as financial director for large infrastructure focused organisations such as the Anglian Water Services Group and the Department for Transport.
He has an Honour’s Degree in Economics from Loughborough University and qualified as a chartered accountant in 1981.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the director’s team at Guernsey Electricity at this critical period in the company’s development, and to be bringing my experience to the business,” said Mr Hipple.
“Guernsey Electricity is going through an important phase of investment, with security of supply being the key driver behind this. I’ll be working with the directors to deliver a corporate strategy that goes hand in hand with the company’s investment in infrastructure to meet this goal.”
Alan Bates, managing director at Guernsey Electricity said: “David has a wealth of financial experience within the utility sector including knowledge of regulation which will support Guernsey Electricity in achieving its corporate goals in the years ahead.”
