Ambit Energy provides electricity and natural gas services in deregulated markets across the United States, primarily marketed through a direct sales channel of more than 250,000 Independent Consultants.
Based in Dallas, Texas, our company is focused on being the finest and most-respected retail energy provider in America, offering cost-effective choices for today’s energy consumer.
In 2010, Ambit was named #1 Fastest-Growing Private Company in America by Inc. magazine, and we continue to pick up steam as the fastest-growing company in the retail energy sector today.
It all started with a simple lunch meeting. On a spring day in 2006, two men had a friendly chat about energy deregulation over turkey sandwiches. Those men – Jere Thompson, Jr. and Chris Chambless – were both excited about the opportunity they saw, and thus began their journey to build “the finest and most-respected retail energy provider in America.”
Their new venture would provide affordable electricity and gas, and they agreed that their company would never sacrifice integrity for growth.
The co-founders went to work immediately, and a few weeks later, Jere and Chris set up shop in a large, renovated warehouse in the historic West End district of downtown Dallas. The expansive office space suited their needs perfectly, helping to establish a feeling of “openness” and enabling faster communication. They bought several $19 fold-up tables to use as desks and put together a team of experienced executives who shared their vision.
