Lovett has been with ENGIE since 2013 having held a number of executive roles, most recently as Divisional CEO for Business Energy and Services, where she led on delivering innovative customer-led solutions and technologies to thousands of UK businesses. Prior to this, she held senior level positions at both Balfour Beatty and Serco.
Speaking of her appointment, Lovett said: “I’m delighted to be taking up the role of ENGIE’s CEO for UK & Ireland. We have a clearly defined strategy in integrated client solutions and flexible and renewable energy, delivering outcomes for both business and local authority customers that enable them to balance their performance with responsibility. I look forward to helping our customers in the transition towards a more decentralised, increasingly digital, zero carbon economy. Our focus on improving people’s lives through better living and working environments remains unchanged.”
Lovett succeeds current CEO Wilfrid Petrie, who will remain with ENGIE, taking up a new position on the Group’s Executive Committee based in Paris. He will also lead the development of the company’s B2B client solutions businesses in France.
The announcement comes as part of wider organisational changes within ENGIE at Group level as it reinforces its senior management to deliver its global “zero-carbon as a service strategy”.
