Iberdrola- the Spanish goliath energy generator – has announced a minor shuffle of top-level jobs at its UK subsidiary – Scottish Power.

Keith Anderson, 53,  has been promoted to the re-introduced role of chief executive of British gas and electricity provider Scottish Power, which is owned by Iberdrola.

Meanwhile, (Mrs) Lindsay McQuade, 41, previously director of policy and innovation, will assume responsibility for managing Scottish Power Renewables in the UK as its new chief executive.

She will oversee a portfolio of more than 40 windfarm sites, which generate two gigawatts of renewable energy, and will be responsible for new project development.

Meanwhile, global oil giant Shell has now completed its take-over of Impello Limited and its subsidiaries (known as “First Utility”), a leading UK household energy and broadband provider, following necessary regulatory and other approvals.

First Utility now becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shell, within its New Energies division, with Colin Crooks, previously Shell’s Vice President, Downstream Strategy & Portfolio, now taking over as First Utility chief executive from today.
