Samuel founded Dr Cost in 2010. At that time, as now, businesses were being harassed relentlessly by utility suppliers and third-party agents to switch supply. Often these offers were not in their best interest. Samuel has, over the past 10 years, become an acknowledged expert in utility cost reduction, having learnt the industry from the bottom up. This expertise includes tariff identification, utility taxation and compliance, negotiating cost saving supplier agreements for businesses and charities, regulatory knowledge and dispute resolution. Samuel’s business now employs in excess of 10 staff serving over 8000 client supplies including direct partnerships with 31 suppliers, thus ensuring that the clients not only benefit from competitive prices but also bill validation. Samuel enjoys playing football, spending time with his children and travelling in his not-so-spare time.
