Energy regulator appoints new board

16th October 2023

Ofgem has announced that it has appointed five New Non-Executive Directors.

Responsible for bringing independent oversight and support, the new Non-Executive Directors will help guide Ofgem’s work on current and future challenges – from restoring resilience in the energy market to maintaining progress towards the UK’s net zero goals.

The 5 appointees, who take up their posts in November, will work with existing Non-Executive Directors Myriam Madden and Barry Panayi, as well as Ofgem’s new Chair and Executive Committee.

The 5 new Non-Executive Directors are:

  • Warren Buckley, outgoing Chair of Citizens Advice
  • Alena Kozakova, Director at E.CA Economics
  • Graham Mather, President of the Infrastructure Forum
  • Jonathan Kini, Non-Executive Director at Ofwat
  • Dr Tony Curzon Price, former advisor at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Cabinet Office and Number 10

Minister for Energy Consumers and Affordability Amanda Solloway said “Protecting households from high energy bills and supporting them towards using cleaner, cheaper energy is integral to our plan for reaching net zero. Bringing a rich breadth of experience in consumer protection, and areas including competition and regulation, Warren, Alena, Graham, Jonathan and Tony will be strong new additions to Ofgem’s Board.”

“I look forward to working with them on our shared mission to champion the rights of energy consumers and build an energy market fit for the future.”
