A senior officer at Ofgem has taken an extended period away from work.
The energy regulator has confirmed to ELN that Simon Wilde, Director of Markets and Gas Crisis is on a sabbatical.
As Mr Wilde is on leave, a number of internal moves at Ofgem have taken place to ensure his responsibilities are covered by other colleagues.
Simon Wilde wrote on LinkedIn: “Really grateful to Ofgem for the chance to take time to recharge, explore interests and spend time with family, after a somewhat hectic few years.
“Ofgem remains the most inspiring place I have worked in my 30-year career. I look forward to returning.”
