CEO of SP Energy Networks
As CEO of SP Energy Networks, Vicky Kelsall leads all Transmission and Distribution activity across Scotland, North Wales, Cheshire, and Merseyside. She is responsible for ensuring 3.5 million customers benefit from a safe, secure, and resilient network, as well as driving the networks’ fundamental role in delivering net zero.
Prior to her appointment, Vicky held the role of Chief Operating Officer of SP Energy Networks from 2020. This followed a 30-year career in customer-focused senior leadership roles across the Retail and Network Businesses, a journey she began when she first joined the ScottishPower Group.
She has worked in international roles for ScottishPower with PacifiCorp and, most recently, with its parent group Iberdrola in North America at Avangrid. She has significant experience leading large, global teams and will oversee SPEN’s network of 3,000 colleagues as well as 3,000 people employed by partners and local communities across the UK.
Vicky joins SPEN at a crucial time, as the Network Business adapts to new RIIO-T2 and ED-2 price controls. She will drive forward SP Energy Networks, continually improving the service customers and stakeholders receive, whilst ensuring the pipes and wires underfoot and overhead are capable of meeting critical ambitions for the future energy system.
