Guernsey Gas boss steps down

The Managing Director of Guernsey Gas has stepped down after disputes with the governments of the Isle of Man and Jersey where he was also MD of their gas companies.

The International Energy Group owns the three utilities and Mr Plenderleith was boss of all three, regularly spending time in the Channel Islands while being based in the Isle of Man.

The Manx Courier reported last week that Mr Plenderleith had left the company with immediate effect and that his successor had already been appointed.

The circumstances of his departure are unknown but his personal LinkedIn account suggests he is looking for other roles, potentially within one of the Crown Dependencies.

The Courier also reported that Manx Gas is to be given notice at the end of this month to end a controversial regulatory deal it has with the island's government.

In Jersey, Mr Plenderleith was involved in a lockdown dispute over the price of gas after Jersey Gas said it would put prices up when Jersey's States refused to include utilities in the island's Covid-19 co-funded payroll scheme.
