About us

Flipper team and beyond

Put simply, we promise
you’ll never overpay for energy again

When it comes to finding the best energy deals available, we’ve discovered that the market is rigged in favour of energy suppliers and price comparison websites. Suppliers leave consumers befuddled with endless complex tariffs, and price comparison websites take the lion’s share of the savings with their hefty commission cheques.

At Flipper we provide you with a simple and effortless energy switching service, helping you find a deal, save time and get value for money.

Our customer promise reflects our commitment to keeping things simple, saving you money, and generally doing our best for you at all times. After all, we work for you.

Here’s why we’re different

Independent

We don’t take commission from suppliers and only work with those that provide the best deals and service.

Effortless

We do the paperwork, compare deals and talk to suppliers. We don’t switch – we flip.

Guaranteed Value

We save our customers hundreds of pounds and guarantee you won’t pay a penny until we’ve saved you £50 or more.

Continuous Savings

We look for better deals every month and flip you if we can save you more.

Management

Sarah Coombs

COO

Sarah has spent her career with customers at the heart of her mind-set. From a key member in her family’s hotel businesses, through to companies such as the RAC and Wessex Water. Sarah has spent 25 years in the water industry, working on developing operational systems, improving processes and focussing on staff development, all to deliver for customers! Sarah managed Wessex Water’s 24-hour control room (serving 2.5 million customers), monitored over 6000 operational sites and had responsibility for emergency planning, business continuity and the quality management system equipping her perfectly to lead our customer and operations teams.  

Having played a big role in Wessex Water maintaining its reputation as a top performing water company, Sarah is relishing the opportunity at Flipper. Sarah believes Flipper is a great product backed up with the very highest levels of customer service and that it will be recognised by its customers and the industry as the switching (flipping) service of choice!

Camilla Rigby

Director of Marketing and Communications

Camilla's spent years extrapolating and bringing to life the personalities of some of Britain's best known companies. Starting out at a Soho-based PR agency, she cut her teeth working with disruptive new technology companies like TomTom (where she helped to introduce the world to sat nav rage) and more established brands like HP. 

A project with Dyson led to her spending five brilliant years at the technology company - launching everything from hand dryers to fans on a global stage. And more recently, she spent four years with OVO Energy; who pioneered a new standard for energy companies. One where customer service really matters and people deserve to be treated fairly.

Flipper appeals to Camilla as it uses technology to benefit customers. It saves them time, money and hassle. It's also a disruptor - looking to shake up the opaque and shady world of switching sites. Away from Flipper, Camilla is mum to two gregarious boys (and Labrador Digby) and campaigns for parents to achieve a better work: family life balance (whilst practicing what she preaches at Flipper!).
