Andrew Turpin takes charge of UK media relations for Iberdrola

Essar Energy's head of media relations Andrew Turpin has joined Scottish Power owner Iberdrola in a newly created role as UK head of media relations.

After three years with Essar, Turpin has been replaced by Jonathan Miller, previously at engineering and tech company Invensys.

Turpin, who starts his role on Thursday and reports to director of international comms Colin McNeill, said: "Iberdrola has expanded pretty quickly in recent years. This is about both explaining that to stakeholders and policy makers and explaining wider developments in an industry subject to a lot of debate at the moment."

Spanish group Iberdrola is a world leader in producing wind turbines and runs a range of energy firms including Brazil-based Elektro.
