Richard Billington has been named as Certas Energy’s new Retail Director. He replaces Ramsay MacDonald, who leaves Certas at the end of December after more than seven years with the company.

Billington joined Certas through the Total Butler acquisition in 2013 and has successfully carried out various General Manager roles and was most recently Regional Director for the South East. He has a wealth of experience within the industry.

“We would like to sincerely thank Ramsay for his contribution to the business,” said Steve Taylor, Managing Director, Certas Energy. “His achievements in Retail are numerous and include growing our retail business, introducing the CoCo network, restoring the Gulf brand, introducing the popular ‘SuperStation’ awards and representing Certas within the wider industry. We wish Ramsay all the very best for the future.”

“This marks the end of a long chapter of association with Certas and DCC,” said Ramsay MacDonald. “In my 31 years of business I can’t think of a group of people who have a better work ethic, customer focus and who deserve to succeed. The time is right for me to pursue some new challenges outside corporate life – which include ‘becoming the perfect father and husband’ and hopefully opportunities to work outside of the UK.”
