Marine and oil and gas services provider James Fisher and Sons (JFS) has named a new chief executive officer (CEO) of the company.

James Fisher said on Friday that Eoghan O’Lionaird would be appointed as the new CEO of the company.

According to the company, he will also join the board of directors with effect from September 1, 2019.

O’Lionaird will take on the position of CEO on October 1 at which point Nick Henry, who has been the CEO for the last fifteen years, will step down. Henry announced his plans to retire from the company and step down from the CEO position back in December 2018.

However, Henry will remain employed by James Fisher until March 31, 2020, to ensure a smooth and effective transition of responsibility.

O’Lionaird has been the Divisional CEO and a member of the executive committee at his current employer Spectris. Before joining Spectris, he held senior management roles at Danaher Corporation and Royal Philips Electronics. He started his career in Japan with technical, marketing, and management roles at Mitsui Kinzoku.

Malcolm Paul, Chairman of James Fisher, said: “After a thorough search process, I am delighted that Eoghan O’Lionaird has agreed to join James Fisher as its new CEO. I am very pleased that we have been able to attract someone with his track record and I look forward to working with Eoghan and the executive team to continue to deliver the excellent growth potential inherent within our business.”
