DCC CEO to step down in late summer

After 7.5 successful years leading the Data Communications Company, Angus Flett will step down as CEO at the end of August.

Under Flett’s tenure, nearly 31 million smart meters and over 60% of all homes in Great Britain have been connected to the smart meter network and more than 99.3% of all homes and businesses across the country are now covered by the network.

The smart meter network is delivering for consumers, helping them keep their energy bills down and switch energy provider more easily and quickly. The network is also playing a critical role in helping to ensure national energy security and enabling the energy system to decarbonise.

A process has started to select the new CEO.

Commenting on his decision to step down, DCC Chair Richard McCarthy said:

“Under Angus’ leadership the DCC has delivered Britain’s smart meter network. This first of its kind infrastructure is now playing a critical role at the heart of the energy system helping to keep bills down, protect British energy security and decarbonise our energy system. I want to thank Angus for his significant contribution and legacy.”

Angus Flett, DCC CEO, said:

“It has been a privilege to lead the DCC on its journey to enable a smart energy system focussed on decarbonisation and social good. The future for the DCC to continue its mandate is exciting and I wish the organisation all success.”
