Our founder & Lead consultant's background
Jonathan Collings, Alesia Communications' founder and lead consultant, started his career in the renewable energy sector in 2006 working at the European Wind Energy Association in Brussels, where he gained, as marketing manager, a special insight into the work of our industry trade bodies worldwide. He was in the organisation team of the EWEA annual and offshore events, as well as sales manager for the magazine Wind Directions . He moved to London in 2008 to take on the role of Global Marketing Manager at RES, where he also managed the communications activities of other renewable energy companies within the RES Group including PV Systems, Wood Energy, Future Heating, and Solar Slate Ltd. During this time, he also developed and executed the marketing strategy of Inbuilt, a reputed energy management and low carbon consultancy firm.
Jonathan sat on the EWEA exhibitor’s council for a number of years, and is a former board member of the South African Wind Energy Association.
In 2011, he co-founded the communications agency Collings & Monney, where he was in charge of delivering all client services. The agency experienced tremendous success, until it was split in 2014 into two separate entities, one operating in Britain, and the other one in France, rebranded "Alesia Communications".
Jonathan Collings was interviewed alongside Vestas and GWEC by Wind Power Monthly for their special cover story on Wind Energy Communications; and also contributed a regular column on energy PR issues in the magazine Recharge, one of the leading publications in the renewable energy industry.
