Ross Taylor, Co-Founder

With 12 years’ experience in the UK energy sector, Ross co-founded United Gas & Power with colleague Mohammad Hafeez, and life-long friend Philip Kane in 2013. With previous experience running an energy brokerage, Ross’s vision was to create an honest and transparent company that put customers at the heart of its culture.

Leading many of UGP’s customer-focused initiatives including the development of a bespoke CRM system, tailored product offerings for specific customer needs and the investment in a people strategy that ensures a happy and motivated workplace, Ross is the driving force behind UGP’s culture of trust and continually looks for opportunities to enhance the experience that all key stakeholders have in dealing with UGP.

In 2018, Ross, together with Co-founders Phillip Kane and Mohammad Hafeez, championed the business decision to make UGP a 100% renewable power supplier, at no additional cost to the customer. He believes strongly that businesses have an ethical responsibility to “do good on top of doing well” and investing in projects and initiatives that help the community and wider world that we operate in.

Born in Leeds, Ross is a family man with three children. He’s highly competitive and enjoys many sports, including football (playing for the UGP 5-a-side team) as well as tennis. He often combines his love of sports with his passion for corporate responsibility by taking part in sporting events to fundraise for the company’s nominated charity – Downs Syndrome Training & Support.
