EnerMech said that it named Christian Brown, the former CEO of engineering and construction company Kentz, as its new CEO effective from January 1, 2020.

Brown led the growth from a small AIM-listed business to a $2.5 billion revenue FTSE 250 company before its sale and integration into SNC Lavalin in 2014.

More recently, Brown held the role of corporate development officer with SNC Lavalin where he worked on the $2.67 billion acquisition of WS Atkins in 2017.

Before this, he held senior leadership roles in KBR and Foster Wheeler with tenures in Europe, Africa, Middle East, APAC, and the Americas.

EnerMech’s chairman, John Kennedy, said: “Chris has an exceptional track record in growing and improving international service-based businesses with an emphasis on customer relationships. I am personally very pleased that we have been able to attract someone of Chris’s caliber and track record to lead the business as it enters its next phase of development.”

It is worth noting that EnerMech founder Doug Duguid returned to the CEO role in September on an interim basis after his initial replacement John Guy stepped down from the role for personal family reasons.

Duguid, who will leave the firm after a planned transition period, added: “Chris Brown was the stand-out candidate to take on the role of CEO and to drive our business on to the next level of international growth.

“Chris is intimately familiar with the market that EnerMech operates in, and there are many strong parallels between his time as CEO of Kentz and our planned growth strategy.”

Regarding the appointment, Brown stated: “I am excited to lead the second phase of EnerMech’s development and to build on the strong foundations established by Doug Duguid and his management team. The company has been through a period of rapid growth over the past ten years, and with the support of The Carlyle Group there are no limits to our future ambitions.”
