Leep Utilities Celebrates Business Growth with Milestone Hire

Multi-utility platform, Leep Utilities, has expanded its Northern team with the appointment of Ben Heath as Project Leader for the North.

Heath’s hire brings the team at Leep Utilities up to 50 employees – a 350% increase from when the business launched in May 2017.

Heath joins the business from BGS Utilities where he has been a Senior Project Manager since 2015.  His new role will see him responsible for overseeing delivery on the Northern sites, ensuring contractors are adhering to standards and providing the right documentation and then being the final point of call before the sites are energised.

The milestone hire follows a period of sustained growth for Leep Utilities, with the acquisition of SSE Water and the business recently obtaining an Independent Gas Transporter licence, both strengthening the business’ multi-utility offering.

Commenting on the significance of the hire, Managing Director of Leep Utilities, Louise Manfredi, said: “It is fantastic to have Ben joining the business at such a significant time; over the past few months Leep Utilities have made fantastic strides towards providing a full multi-utility offering.

“The business has gone from strength to strength over the past two years and it is testament to the team’s ongoing hard work and commitment to providing straightforward connections for all customers.”

Heath added: “I’m delighted to be joining Leep Utilities at such an exciting time; the speed at which the business has grown over the past two years is remarkable.”

The business recently secured over 1000 sq ft of office space at Reading’s Green Park. The new office space supports the planned expansion of Leep Utilities Southern team over the next 12 months.
