As Chief Executive (until running for parliament in 2010), he floated the company on the London Stock Exchange in 2005 , and was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst and Young in 2008. Since becoming an MP he has been elected onto the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee and has sat on the Energy Bill Committee.
