David Smith Appointed Chief Executive of ENA

Mark Mathieson, Director of Distribution at Scottish and Southern Energy and ENA Deputy Chairman last night announced that David Smith has been appointed ENA Chief Executive.

Speaking at ENA’s Well Connected 7 event held at the Tate Modern Gallery, Mark Mathieson announced: “ Last September we asked David Smith to step into the breach and take on the role of Acting Chief Executive.

“What has impressed us about David since taking up that challenge is that he didn’t take the easy option of keeping things ticking over. Together with his senior team he has driven the board to review the purpose of the ENA and how we maintain relevance in a vastly changing environment.

“It has been the long interview, and David has proved during the period that he is the right person to take the ENA forward and therefore it gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of David to the role of Chief Executive on a permanent basis.

“I am sure everyone involved in electricity and gas distribution and transmission will join with me in wishing David congratulations on his appointment and wishing him and the senior team the very best wishes for the future.”
