During that time, he spearheaded the innovation-driven and customer-focused areas of Powerstar’s strategy.

Since starting as a consultancy in 2001, Powerstar has grown to become one of the UK’s leading energy specialists, with products and technologies engineered in the UK and exported to more than 20 countries, worldwide. 

The company’s founder, Dr Alex Mardapittas, will continue offering his expertise as chairman of the board. 

Solon said: “I am delighted to be taking on the role and would like to thank Alex for his work and dedication in getting Powerstar to where we are today. 

“I look forward to sharing my vision and plans for continued growth over the coming months, with the support of Alex and other board members.”

He added: “As a solutions-based business, our critical focus is to provide the very-best customer experience, from initial contact through to post installation. This, more than anything, encourages the rollout of technologies and means we can continue to create stable growth for Powerstar, while helping our clients access and implement technologies that both save energy and cut emissions.”
