Hometree Appoints Former Stagecoach MD, Carla Stockton-Jones, as new Chief Operating Officer

Carla Stockton-Jones joins Hometree with a wealth of business experience having previously been Managing Director of Stagecoach, the UK’s biggest bus company – where she led 24,000 employees – and UK Home Service Director at Sky – the business responsible for Sky’s large engineer force and brand in the home. Her appointment will further bolster Hometree’s rapidly growing market presence in the residential energy services market, where over the coming years the company aims to make renewable energy accessible and affordable for over one million homeowners in the UK.

Stockton-Jones will lead Hometree’s day-to-day operations across its three divisions – renewable installations, renewable financing and maintenance & servicing, as well as leading all M&A integration efforts – an increasingly important growth strategy for the business. 

Simon Phelan, Founder and CEO of Hometree said “I am incredibly excited to be able to welcome someone as experienced as Carla Stockton-Jones to Hometree. With Hometree now starting to scale up at pace, both organically and increasingly through M&A, it felt like the right time for Hometree to take in a proven leader of scaled, best-in-class services businesses. Having someone as successful as Carla decide to join Hometree over many other options is a great boost of confidence to all the team that we are going in the right direction.”

Carla Stockton-Jones, COO of Hometree said “It’s an exciting new chapter for both Hometree and me. I’m looking forward to bringing my years of experience leading scaled services businesses to set new benchmarks in operational efficiency, as Hometree rapidly expands from being a home services challenger to becoming a leading energy services business that makes renewable energy accessible to over a million UK households.”
