Appointment of Commercial & Digital Transformation Director

Yü Group PLC (AIM: YU.), the independent supplier of gas, electricity and water to the UK SME and corporate sector, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Prothero as Commercial & Digital Transformation Director.

Jason will be responsible for driving digitalisation and automation to further enhance operational and commercial practices across the Group. He will also be part of a strengthened Executive Committee.  

Jason joins from SSE Retail, now part of energy supply company OVO Energy, where he spent 15 years working in a variety of leadership positions.
