Absolute Solar and Wind has appointed Edinburgh-educated Graham Provest as its new Managing Director.

He has been promoted to the post in the family-owned business after joining Absolute last year as sales and marketing director.

Tom Newall, the previous Managing Director and son of Founding Director Mark Newall, continues in his role as a Director of Absolute with specific responsibility for key projects, building relationships and the expansion of the site and demonstration renewable energy developments at the company’s base at Gartocharn, near Loch Lomond.

Since joining from the Mark Group last year, Provest has been responsible for increasing Absolute’s sales and marketing focus and for launching a number of new products that will save clients money on their energy bills whilst not being reliant on the government’s ever decreasing incentives.  

Mark Newall, Founding Director, said; “Absolute has grown significantly in the past year and Graham’s experience in sales and marketing is enabling us to continue to expand the business and ensure that we are able to access to the best available renewable technologies for our customers.”

Graham Provest said; “At Absolute, we focus on tried and tested technologies such as the solar, biomass and CHP systems that we have installed at our headquarters.

“In the last few months we have installed several multi-million pound projects across Scotland and we have exciting projects in the pipeline.”

Over the past 10 years Absolute has worked with a range of customers who include AG Barr, Mackies and Scottish Water to deliver bespoke renewable energy systems.
