Patrick NAUGHTON - Partner
Patrick Naughton (54) is an Anglo-French entrepreneur currently based in Brighton, UK. Previously, Patrick was based in London and Hong Kong and created and led companies in the fields of telecoms, trade publishing, exhibitions and satellite television. Patrick started his career in advertising following a BA (honours) degree in International Relations at Keele University.
Patrick's most notable achievement was the launch of the licensed UK telecoms carrier Telecom One which at its height was turning over £65M per year.
Patrick was attracted to the renewable energy field by the prospect of long-term government-backed contracts in contrast to the volatile world of Telecoms and its ever-changing technologies; he was not expecting the Moratorium in France in 2010!
At Solarfarm, Patrick concentrates on the UK PV market as well as handling group online marketing and databases.
Patrick speaks fluent English and French and very basic Spanish and German.
