This follows consultation with the BSC Panel.

The Board agreed that Peter possessed the character and capabilities that we wanted to take Elexon forward and is confident in their choice of Peter to lead Elexon. He will work closely with the non-executive directors and the Executive team to lead Elexon during this time of significant industry change.

Peter joined Elexon in 2016 as a member of the Executive team and has been acting as interim CEO since August.

Elexon Chair and BSC Panel Chair Sara Vaughan said: ‘We are really pleased to confirm Peter in role as the enduring CEO of Elexon.  Peter brings with him over thirty years of industry experience, including nearly seven years at Elexon, most recently as Chief Operating Officer, and therefore is ideally placed to lead the business in the rapidly changing environment we operate in.  His leadership skills, deep understanding of the industry, and background in and knowledge of technology, data and digitalisation provide the combination of skills that will enable Elexon to deliver on the strategy we recently put in place. The Board and I look forward to working with Peter and the Executive on the next stage of Elexon’s future.’
