ENERGY regulator Ofgem yesterday said it has hired Dermot Nolan as its new chief executive, effective from March 2014.

Noland has been chairman at the Commission for Energy Regulation in Ireland since 2011 and a commissioner since 2008.

The head of Ofgem's market division, Andrew Wright, has been acting as temporary chief executive since Alistair Buchanan stepped down earlier this year.
