Xerxes is the Business Development Manager and brings over 15 years of experience within the Environmental industry, in both a consultant and a sales capacity, to the Carbon Smart team. Liaising closely with the Senior Management, Xerxes’ main responsibilities include providing support for Carbon Smart’s commercial development, identifying new opportunities with some of the organisation’s existing clients, while building and nurturing new relationships with businesses looking to enhance their Sustainability credentials.
Having studied Environmental Science (B.Sc) at Queen Mary & Westfield College (University of London), Xerxes initially spent 9 years in consultancy managing multiple environmental services and projects within the property, construction & infrastructure sectors across London and the South East. The challenges of subsequently working for a start-up, brought many exciting and engaging opportunities to work on bespoke energy efficiency, renewable energy development and battery microgrid projects, on UK based corporate sites and with remote off grid opportunities in the Caribbean, Africa and Indian Ocean regions.
Prior to joining Carbon Smart, a short hiatus from the Environmental sector, saw Xerxes work in a sales capacity with the Travel & Tourism sector across Europe, for the leading global strategic market intelligence provider, Euromonitor International. Some of Xerxes’ clients have included numerous Local Authorities, London Underground, Tetley Tea, JLR, numerous off grid 5* Caribbean resorts, Skyscanner, Enterprise Car Rental, Kuoni GTS and Hertz Car Rental among others.
