Bickerton is now heading up the development and delivery of an integrated information system strategy for the energy group.

"I am very much looking forward to the challenge of identifying appropriate integration opportunities while supporting the individual businesses and we have a strong team who will continue to work hard to improve and develop our businesses," Bickerton said in a statement.

Bickerton joined Centrica in 2004 and has previously worked for Fujitsu and ICL where he held a number of general management roles.
