Andy Green

Systems Director

Andy has enjoyed a long career in IT, creating and managing the development of a variety of applications. For the past few years, he has specialised in energy monitoring. Using his experience of the industry, he is now continuing to develop the Energy Effects system at Future Focus Energy.

He firmly believes that systems are only useful if they are understandable and easy to use. There is necessarily a good deal of complexity involved behind the scenes of most worthwhile systems, but the trick is to hide that complexity behind an intuitive front end.

Andy and Paul met when they worked together previously and shared an interest in using up-to-date technologies to respond to customer requirements. Working at Future Focus has allowed them to follow through on that.

Paul Friday

Managing Director

Hello there, my name is Paul Friday, and I am the Managing Director and founder of Future Focus Energy Ltd.

I formed the company in 2014, after working within the metering and Energy monitoring industry for several years, with the intention of providing a simple easy to use and understand solution for as many organisations as possible utilising the latest technologies.

By bringing together a team of experienced enthusiastic colleagues, that I have worked with over many years I believe we are now able to offer one of the most intuitive monitoring solutions in the industry.

Our informal, yet professional service seeks to deliver and exceed our clients expectations. From the Boardroom to the Shop floor we can engage with all users.

Originally from Liverpool, but now residing in sunny Blackpool, I hope my sense of humour, professionalism and not to mention awful singing voice come across from not only my personal life, but to embrace the challenge of new business opportunities.

To work hard, achieve goals and ambitions, deliver great product to our customers, meeting new people and making some wonderful new friends along the way both workwise and socially life cannot be all bad hey.

Karen Friday

Office Manager

Hello there I am Karen Friday, yes the ‘other half’ to Paul. My role in Future Focus Energy Limited is as the office manager.

In my role as office manager, I’m responsible for organising all of the administrative activities that facilitate the smooth running of the office. This includes the organising of people, information and other resources. I also oversee and undertake the financial day to day running of the company.

In my previous career I was awarded the ‘Lancashire Life Award’ for my services to the people of Lancashire as my role as a Fire Officer with Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service.

Outside of work, we are kinship carers to two young grandchildren – who keep us very busy.

As well as working hard, we like to play hard too – enjoying our passion following the mighty reds – Liverpool Football Club and our local team Blackpool FC.

Jeff Gore

Operations Director

Hi there, I am Jeff Gore, and I am the Operations Director at Future Focus Energy Ltd. I have actually known and worked with Paul now for over 30 years, in fact we both served our electrical apprenticeship together back in the 1980’s.

In the time between us working together I have worked in the Mining, Petro-Chemical and commercial industry sectors, initially working as a time served electrician, but as time has gone on I have become more of a specialist within IT Networking and communications systems, with an extensive knowledge of all industrial protocols

For my sins, I have in fact been given my own tag line of “the bloke who makes anything talk to each other” which has certainly stuck.

The knowledge I gained within IT has certainly come in useful working at Future Focus, especially when we need to liaise with clients’ IT departments to ensure secure communication between our systems and the outside world, ensuring our data is transmitted without any client disruption.

When away from work, I enjoy my Rugby Union, which as a native Kiwi, I have been fortunate enough to have played at, to a good standard for many years, but am more of an active supporter nowadays and enjoy the social side of the game.
