Dixons executive jumps ship to head up new energy firm.

The boss of Dixons UK is stepping down to head up the new energy supplier to be born out of the merger of SSE’s household unit and Npower.

Katie Bickerstaffe, UK and Ireland boss at the retailer, will step down to become chief executive at the energy provider later this year.

Her departure comes just weeks after Dixons also lost group chief executive Seb James, who jumped ship to join Boots.
The retailer’s finance boss, Humphrey Singer, left the firm in January.

Ms Bickerstaffe’s appointment is the first for SSE and Innogy’s new entity and it follows a “competitive process that was facilitated by an executive search company”, the firms said.

The new chief executive will lead work being done to prepare listing the new company on the London Stock Exchange, which is scheduled to take place late this year or early next.
