Senergy appoints new management team
Allen Mathieson appointed as technical head of project management.
Senergy has changed its senior management team with a number of key appointments.
The company, which provides fully-integrated project and asset development services across the energy industry, anticipates creating up to 80 new positions by the end of May, as a result of increasing demand for its services.
The new appointments include Allan Mathieson becoming global technical head of project management and carbon capture and storage (CCS team leader) and Andrew Jones taking up the role of Asia Pacific energy services manager in power engineering.
Alasdair Buchanan, Senergy’s chief operating officer, said: “Our continued success across all our areas of specialist services and technical expertise is providing Senergy with a solid platform to ensure future growth. The appointments of Allan, Don, Ronald and Andrew to our senior management not only brings additional, valuable experience but reinforces Senergy’s ambitious vision to become the industry-leading energy services expert.
Mr Mathieson will be based in Edinburgh and will be responsible for instilling a sense of professional project management in the delivery of projects to clients – the focus will be on the application of scope, cost and time management principles to projects to enhance their value to Senergy.
According to a company statement, Mr Mathieson’s appointment reflects the industry requirement for increasing expertise in this sector and is one of a number of exciting Senergy appointments in CCS to meet this need. Mr Mathieson has worked on a number of Senergy CCS projects in an Associate capacity, most notably in support of BP at the In Salah CO2 Storage project in Algeria over the past six years.
Over the past nine months, Senergy has appointed 121 members of staff into new roles across the business – with 80 of those based in its North-east offices (Aberdeen, Banchory & Alford) and nine in Edinburgh – and enjoyed a 50% increase in international business. The company is looking to recruit an additional 80 employees before the end of this financial year. The company’s rapid expansion has been further underpinned by the unveiling of new offices in Aberdeen, Bath, Dubai and Edinburgh during 2012.
