Chris Starling

“In my previous role, I was part of a team which developed a training programme allowing new recruits to build their skills in various commercial disciplines.  As such, I have seen how effective training is in having a direct impact on performance, confidence and promotion prospects from an employer’s perspective”

After graduating from university, I worked for the fund management group Aviva Investors and the Bank of New York, holding a variety of corporate finance roles before moving to the energy sector. I have worked for Centrica, Sterling Energy and ENGIE in various commercial, economist and business development roles before founding Holt Energy Advisors (HEA) in 2018.

HEA has recently partnered with Richard House Children’s Hospice in London.  It was not until understanding the activities provided, versus the money they get, that I really appreciated their amazing work. This has led to us supporting them as much as possible.
