Leading global energy services company Senergy has strengthened its management team with three senior appointments.
The company, which provides fully-integrated project and asset development services across the energy industry, has appointed Rhys Medler to the newly created role of Vice President in Quality Health Safety Security and Environment (QHSSE) and Compliance.
He is joined by Dick Hall in the position of Alternative Energy and Power Engineering Global Coordinator and Tony Morton as Global Technical Head of Power Systems. Senergy is committed to providing development opportunities for existing members of staff, demonstrated with these latest appointments.
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 that of its 2011 Virgin Fast Track 100 of Britain’s fastest-growing privately owned companies.
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 Medler will be based in Aberdeen, while Mr Hall and Mr Morton will work from the US and Australia respectively.
Alasdair Buchanan, Senergy’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “The continuing growth of Senergy will be supported by these appointments. All three have great experience within the company and have already played an important role in our success.
“These appointments help consolidate our position as a market leader in all forms of energy and provide a platform for future growth.”
Mr Medler spent the early part of his career in offshore survey operations before joining the Floyd & Associates management team, which later became part of the Senergy group. In 2010, after three years as Operations Director for Survey & GeoEngineering, he became Senergy’s Global Head of QHSSE.
“As a company, Senergy considers the safety and well being of our employees as critical and equal to all other business indicators,” said Mr Buchanan.
“This new role for Rhys ensures there is representation and responsibility for QHSSE and compliance at a high level and provides a visible statement of our commitment to maintaining an excellent safety record.”
Mr Medler said: “A constant focus on health and safety is given huge importance at Senergy and I look forward to the challenge of ensuring we continue to achieve the high standards we have set ourselves.”
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 Mr Hall 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.
