– UK, Northampton – Infinis Energy plc today announces its intention to appoint Tom Hinton to the board as Chief Financial Officer following the retirement of Gordon Boyd from Infinis. Tom will join from Centrica Energy, where he has been Chief Financial Officer (Centrica Energy Canada) since 2013 following 10 years in other finance roles within Centrica. Gordon Boyd will remain Chief Financial Officer until Tom formally joins the Infinis board in late November 2015.
Since joining Infinis in 2012, Gordon has played a key role in helping to steer the Company through its IPO on the London Stock Exchange in 2013 and in ensuring the delivery of its growth plans. Gordon has informed the board of his intention to step down to pursue other interests but will remain with the company until early 2016 to ensure an orderly transition.
Ian Marchant, Chairman, said “I would like to thank Gordon for his significant contribution to Infinis over a key period in the Company’s evolution. He has played a crucial part in ensuring the delivery of the company’s strategy and business model and he leaves Infinis in a strong position. I am delighted to welcome Tom to his new role as we lead Infinis through the next stage of its development.”
Eric Machiels, Chief Executive, said “Tom’s impressive track record of progress and delivery within Centrica allied to his broad power sector experience will bring significant insight and value to the management team.”
Tom Hinton said “I am very pleased to be joining Infinis and becoming part of the leadership team. Infinis’ considerable potential and strong delivery of operational performance and growth plan commitments make this an exciting opportunity”.
