Founder & Managing Director
Alex founded Nationwide Utilities with the intention to simplify the complex and temperamental world of energy procurement and management. Like many, he had always been fascinated by the seemingly endless possibilities presented by the energy industry and revelled in all its remarkably fast-paced innovation. Unfortunately, he felt that the supply procurement process had become unnecessarily convoluted, even for the most established businesses.
Over the course of the past two decades, Alex has channelled his entrepreneurial spirit into building something capable of challenging the status quo and instigating real change. To achieve his goals, he knew he'd have to push every boundary at every juncture.
Mike has operated as an energy consultant for 26 years at the highest levels in strategic energy procurement, energy bureau and energy service delivery.
When the markets deregulated Mike pioneered the UK’s first energy brokerages by founding Total Energy and UMI, that consisted of some 350 sales staff, and many of his staff went on to own their own successful energy brokerages firms. Mike later helped STC Energy to become the UK's leading bureau software provider before they were acquired by a PLC.
He was then headhunted by EDF Energy where, as an Executive, he was instrumental in developing their Pan European Energy Services department - managing their energy efficiency product portfolio for their major business customers.
In 2012 Mike became Sales Director of Beond Group with the aim of attracting large brands and public sector clients. He successfully helped Beond grow 20-fold in 10 years by launching 2 public sector frameworks and bringing on some of the largest energy accounts in their sectors, which resulted in Beond selling on to a PLC in Dec 2021.
In 2022 Mike joined Nationwide Utilities. The objective of the current role is to grow the business by developing and implementing a strategy to promote the company’s unique energy forecasting software, designing client net zero propositions and delivering bespoke PPA offers to the I&C and public sector markets.
