Leisure Energy has appointed former Business Development Director for Places for People Leisure Management Ltd (PfPLM) Tim Hewett as part of a company expansion.
This new role at Leisure Energy will see Tim utilising 39 years’ experience within the leisure sector to help leisure operators to make significant savings by strategically managing energy more effectively.
As the second highest overhead for leisure operators, the bespoke installations provided by Leisure Energy maximise building performance and tackle energy wastage, which leads to significant savings, operational efficiency and environmental sustainability.
Tim moves from PfPLM, formerly DC Leisure after 20 years as Business Development Director for the leisure management company. Tim was instrumental in growing the number of local authority leisure management contracts from four centres in 1994 to over 120 when he left in July.
Tim also undertook a key role in the management buyout of DC Leisure along with two fellow directors in 2003. He became an Executive Director on the main board after acquisition.
He has sat on a number of industry boards including The Royal Institute of British Architects panel of leisure experts, as a director of the main board of ukactive in its former guise Fitness Industry Association and the Chartered Institute for the Management for Sport and Physical Activity when it was operating as the Institute of Leisure & Amenity Management.
Tim has a specific interest in assisting businesses, particularly those in early growth stages and wanting to provide services to the UK leisure market and said “I am looking forward to working with the Leisure Energy team to investigate and formulate strategies to grow their business, particularly as they have an in-depth and scientific understanding of monitoring, controlling and reducing consumption. Together we are aiming to transform the way leisure centres look at energy usage and become active energy managers. There is so much opportunity for centres to do better. Our vision is to become the leading organisation for energy reduction in the leisure industry”.
