Interim Business Unit Manager, P & L responsible for a £2M turnover business unit (part of very large energy group)
Controlled costs while reviewing how to best redevelop the business
Managed through a very unsettling period with no staff resignations
Closed out legacy issues and millions of pounds in contract liabilities
Integrated the unit elements into other French and US business units
As Interim Unit Manager for a business unit developing energy trading software to UK market regulations, I ran the business, focusing on:
- supporting completion of a large group led contract.
- closing out many problem legacy contracts with associated liabilities, all of which were achieved.
- ensuring profitable outcomes for other smaller contracts.
- rebuilding of the order book.
In parallel, I developed an approach for the part migration of activity to the US and the remaining activity to merge with a European business unit – giving the best chance for commercial viability in the market sector.
I stewarded the business unit through the transition, resolving a myriad and diverse range of issues both real and political.
