water.Retail asks what makes us different

water.Retail magazine recently asked four key individuals at Consultus International, parent group of The Energy Brokers and The Waterbuyers, what makes our services stand out from the competition.

Adam Madeley, Head of Water Operations

We offer genuine market insight and experience. The Waterbuyers team is led by Ed Gray – former director of energy for Hilton Worldwide and head of energy and carbon for Marks & Spencer – and, myself, who spent the past four years with Severn Trent and then Water Plus, England’s biggest water retailer, preparing for the opening of the competitive water market. This is in-depth knowledge of water deregulation, English pricing and value-add opportunity, coupled with client-side expectation, allows us to be truly consultative in what we do.

Jonathan Akers, Director

We formed The Waterbuyers to enable a dedicated focus on the water market and its deregulation, and we recruited industry experts to add value for our clients. Our integrated software that manages water accounts is the same core platform as other utilities. The combination of our systems and procurement expertise ensures our clients can benefit from market-leadiing experts and the one-stop shop vision of all their utility data via our consultants and web-portal into our systems.

David Peake, Director

Our USP is without doubt our ethics. We have pioneered transparency in the TPI marketplace and always put the customer first.  We provide “best advice to clients” – and in some case that means “don’t switch yet” – and work on an open book, trust partner basis.

Luke Booth, Senior Consultant

A one-size-fits-all approach is not adequate in this market and The Waterbuyers is uniquely building long-term strategies with clients to review the market on a regular and ongoing basis.  This approach means clients are kept informed of market developments and our regular communication means clients will benefit from market evolution.
