MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme), the standards organisation for small-scale domestic renewable energy and technology across the UK, has appointed Brian Wright as group finance director.

His arrival comes as MCS shares plans to redevelop its oversight of consumer protection, quality and compliance across the low-carbon sector, following on from a six-week scheme consultation that took place this summer.

Wright brings a wealth of financial experience to the organisation from his background working in statutory accounting, management accounting, systems migration, governance, and payroll in a range of environments from SMEs to PLCs.

Since training and qualifying as an ACA accountant in a top ten practice, he has worked for over 15 years in finance across multiple industries including financial services, energy, construction, and the public sector.

As the first MCS group finance director, Wright will be responsible for financial management across both MCS and the MCS Foundation. He will oversee whole system finances, from generating revenue at MCS, donating 100% of surplus income to the MCS Foundation and overseeing the allocation of grants from the MCS Foundation to support projects and organisations to develop low-carbon solutions, technologies, and community efforts to help drive the UK towards decarbonisation of our homes and businesses.

Commenting on this MCS CEO, Ian Rippin, said: “The financial performance of MCS has significantly improved over the last five years, moving from a loss-making enterprise at novation, to one that today makes a significant contribution to the development and future growth of the sector. We’re therefore delighted to welcome Brian to the MCS team. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the organisation that will be critical for achieving our ambitious new plans to support UK consumers and contractors.”
