about

Axiom exists to ensure that no organisation has been overcharged for, or is spending too much on their utilities.

BESPOKE CONSULTANCY

Axiom Utilities is a specialist management consultancy with unique experience of innovative product development and service provision in utilities for the public sector. Axiom has over 30 years’ experience of delivering services and solutions to complex energy and water portfolios.

One of Axiom’s key reasons for existing, is to clear away the smoke and break down the mirrors that are used within the utility sector against end users, for the sole benefit of consultants, intermediaries and suppliers. Complexity and obfuscation, jargon and hard selling are being used against even the largest organisations.

We use our many years of high-end utility consultancy experience to bring back accountability and clarity. Furthermore, it is our desire to enable all public sector organisations, large or small, to benefit from the best advice and the most competitive products.

Axiom understands that all organisations, each situation and every opportunity is different. And that’s why Axiom is a bespoke consultancy.

  Ben Coburn, Director   Ben has worked in the energy industry for over 15 years.  He has overall responsibility for the sales, energy procurement and financial side of the company. In his spare time he hits things - mainly punch bags or mitts - but occasionally real people (almost always with their consent) while they try, and often succeed, to hit him back.

  Dominic Kolb, Director   Dominic has set up energy bureau services for some of the largest companies in the UK, and is ultimately responsible for the entire bureau, audit, data management and reporting function for Axiom.  His 3 favourite things in the world (after his family) are lego, spreadsheets and working out (at best, only 2 of these are true!).

  Max Cowburn, Head of Sales   Max heads up our entire sales function and liaises with both of our marketing consultants. Outside of work, Max likes to barbeque stuff.  In the summer he does it quite literally outside of work.  He has set up a smoker on the salesroom balcony, and treats everyone to his hot, smoky delights every Friday afternoon!

  Mike Waddington, Bureau & Audits Manager   Mike likes to dive.  All the time.  At work, he heads up one of our Audit teams and oversees the public sector deep- dive  Timeline™ Audits.  On weekends, he straps a scuba tank to his back and rolls backwards into the ocean.  He has dived off the coast of 4 continents, and wants to dive beneath the polar ice-cap (rather him than me!)

  Ben Allen,  Commercial Services Manager   Ben is responsible for ensuring Axiom's services meet and exceed the needs and wants of our customers and potential customers.  Axiom don't have "one-size-fits-all" services - so Ben ensures each contract is a perfect fit.  Out of work, he keeps chickens (in a coup - not in the freezer) and spends as much time outdoors as he can.

  Charlotte Dickinson, SME Sales Manager   "Shoes!" Is the instant, resounding and rather forceful reply when asked her 3 favourite things.  We believe her - we've yet to see her wear the same pair twice.  Once she's chosen the day's pair, Charlotte manages our SME energy broker sales team and makes sure their targets are met and their shoes are shined.

  Paul Williams, Utility Procurement Manager   Paul has 2 degrees in Mathematics, from 2 different Universities - and for the life of us, we can't work out why.  Any way, Paul uses his mastery of numbers to aid him in his goal to procure energy and water for Axiom's customers at the best price possible.

We give you a contributory pension and private health insurance.  We even give you paid holidays! Plus upto 6 extra PAID occasional days - for those times that you have to wait in for the boiler repair man.

You would come to work in the nicest office on the Fylde coast and best of all, we're a really friendly bunch of people to work with (in our humble opinion).  So really...get in touch.
