UK: Senergy Strengthens Its Management Teams with Two New Appointments
Global leading energy services company Senergy has strengthened its alternative energy and power engineering teams with two senior appointments.
The company, which provides fully-integrated project and asset development services across the energy industry, has appointed Dick Hall to the position of Alternative Energy and Power Engineering Global Coordinator and Tony Morton as Global Technical Head of Power Systems.
Senergy applies its expertise and technology to develop and manage oil and gas fields and alternative energy projects in partnership with its clients. The company was recently ranked in the Sunday Times 2012 HSBC International Track 200 league table as well as in the 2011 Virgin Fast Track 100 of Britain’s fastest-growing privately owned companies.
Alasdair Buchanan, Senergy’s Chief Operating Officer, said the appointments helped demonstrate the company’s commitment to providing development opportunities for existing members of staff.
Over the past 12 months, Senergy has appointed 50 members of staff into new roles across the business and expects to recruit around 100 new employees in the coming year. The rapid expansion has been underpinned by the unveiling of new offices in Aberdeen, Bath, Dubai and Edinburgh during 2012.
Mr Hall and Mr Morton will work from the US and Australia respectively.
Mr Buchanan said: “The continuing growth of Senergy will be supported by these appointments. Dick and Tony have great experience within the company and have already played an important role in our success.
“The knowledge of the company and experience of the industry that both Dick and Tony possess make them an ideal fit for the roles. These appointments help consolidate our position as a market leader in all forms of energy and provide a platform for future growth.”
Mr Hall will focus on integrating alternative energy and power engineering throughout the business and generating more project opportunities.
He has 30 years’ experience providing technical, managerial, and regulatory compliance support. As project manager he has been involved in the delivery of several high profile wind turbine developments, both onshore and offshore, in addition to marine power projects.
From Melbourne, a centre for power engineering, Mr Morton will work to develop technical standards and workflows across the globe, provide peer review expertise and ensure quality of work.
Before joining Econnect in 2005, Mr Morton was a postdoctoral fellow at Monash University having previously received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Melbourne University. He took on the role of senior engineer in 2007 and became a principal in 2010 – by this time Econnect was part of Senergy.
Established in 2005, Senergy is currently made up of more than 700 professionals worldwide across its Aberdeen headquarters and through a network of offices in the UK, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Australia, South East Asia and the Americas.
