    Helen Edwards

    Managing Director

    Helen has over 25 years experience in the energy industry and is an expert on gas purchasing, supply, shipping and regulation in the UK. Her roles in trading, gas shipping and pricing means she has a very commodity-centric view of energy markets. She founded Ceres Energy in 2008 and has been managing director since inception.

    Previously, in 2000, she founded a company that continues to provide consultancy and trading services to E&P companies. Before that, she was responsible for creating and managing the gas trading and shipping operation for Northern Electric, a role which included negotiating and then operating major gas and power contracts as well as regulatory and policy matters. She gained her initial expertise in long term gas purchase contracts at British Gas in the early 1990’s.
