Stuart Pearce, the managing director of Corsham-based commercial energy management company, SMARTech energy, has successfully graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK programme.

An official ceremony was held at Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre on 11 December and was hosted by Oxford University and Goldman Sachs with speakers, dean of Saïd Business School, Peter Tufano and beauty entrepreneur, Liz Earle.

The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme is designed by leading experts to “provide high quality, practical education and business support to leaders of high-growth small businesses.” It specifically addresses the support gap for small enterprises and aims to “unlock the economic and job creation for businesses.”

Stuart, who received more than 100 hours of practically-focused business and management education, said: “The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme has been an incredibly worthwhile experience and I’m delighted to have joined the ranks of its Alumni. The knowledge gained from attending the programme means new areas of business growth have been implemented, along with processes and procedures, which are now in place to improve the efficiency of the business.”

He added: “In addition, the networking benefits from meeting like-minded business leaders has also been of significant value; and this is already opening up new and exciting opportunities for SMARTech energy.”

Stuart Pearce formed SMARTech energy in 2014 with the objective to build a business that would “offer complete energy management and reduction” for commercial businesses; substantially reducing energy costs by as much as 50% year on year which limits their impact to the environment.

An Accredited supplier of The Carbon Trust, Stuart claims he has developed an award-winning company that “controls the whole process from bespoke energy consultancy, through to concept, installation, maintenance and full project management.”
