About Shaun…

Deck officer with Royal Fleet Auxiliary, moving into British Gas Corporate sales which gave me a foundation in understanding energy client and business needs.

Recognising opportunities, I set up Refresh Now Ltd in 2002. 18 years on I still have many of the same clients that I represented on day one. My average day consists on being very hands-on with existing and new clients and making sure that my team has immediate expert support and guidance.

About Kevin…

With a background in insurance, I was able to easily transfer my detailed skills set over to the energy industry. I quickly became an expert in the utilities market, understanding the ever-increasing costs and negative implications that this was having on businesses throughout the UK, if they weren’t receiving the right advice.

Nearly 10 years on I am a specialist in the industry and have seen many economic climates changes. I continue to advise and represent my clients in the procurement of energy and telecoms ensuring a positive outcome.

I have been with Refresh Now for seven years.
