Further to our announcement earlier in the month The Centrex group are delighted to announce the recruitment of a new Managing Director at Meter Provida: the Chesterfield based provider of Gas and electric meter: Supply, configuration and installer to the commercial and domestic sectors.

Tim Houtby will start as managing Director of Meter Provida from the 26th of June 2023 and will work alongside Paul Corrigan the current Managing Director for a period of time as Paul transitions to his new role of COO for the Centrex group.

Tim has forged a successful 30-year career in Utility Metering and Supply Chain. From initially managing courier depots for TNT, he was then invited to join The Fusion Group to assist in setting up Meter Provida Ltd. As Managing Director, he steered the business to its place as hugely successful industry service provider during his original 20-year tenure. Following the sale of the business Tim then opted to move into Meter Asset Management, and latterly set up, and launched a Meter Installation and Utility Asset business for a renowned Utility Sector plc. Tim brings a wealth of success of Utility Sector Growth to the group and will help guide the business through the developing changes and opportunities that lie ahead.

Mike Heslop MD of the Centrex Group stated, “Tim’s first-hand 30 years’ experience and proven delivery capabilities in the meter market will be priceless to the Centrex group as we move to bring 21st Century supply chain Servitisation solutions to a sector still stuck in the traditional 20th Century approach.” With Paul moving to his new role this further strengthens the operational capabilities across our operating board as we implement common operational procedures and systems linking the entire supply chain together in one seamless solution”

He added “I sincerely wish Tim and Paul the greatest success in their new roles and look forward to working with the entire team to ensure we delight clients, develop our staff and strengthen the brand.”
