Seeboard chief marketer quits in wake of sale to EdF

Seeboard Energy marketing and sales director Nigel Samuels has left following the company’s acquisition by Electricité de France-owned London Electricity Group. He does not have a job to go to.

LE Group recently promoted Seeboard’s head of residential markets, Travers Clarke-Walker, to director of marketing for retail (MW last week) as part of its ongoing restructure. At Seeboard, Clarke-Walker reported to Samuels. He will now report to the chief operating officer of LE Group’s retail business, Derek Lickorish.

Samuels joined Seeboard in 1998 as sales and marketing director. Before that, he was managing director of the company’s retail business, which was sold to Dixons. Following LE Group’s acquisition of Seeboard, Samuels has been responsible for the integration of Seeboard’s business within the group, and has reported to managing director Peter Hofman.

Hofman has since been promoted to the group’s managing director for retail and marketing.

Samuels says: “I am looking for fresh and exciting challenges outside the utility sector. I have been busy concluding the Seeboard Energy campaign after the acquisition by EdF.”

LE Group also owns the LE, Virgin HomeEnergy and SWEB brands.
