Xodus Group has hired its first corporate development director to spearhead the energy consultancy’s growth.
New recruit Phil Cooper was most recently London general manager at Heerema Marine Contractors.
Mr Cooper will strengthen Xodus’s leadership team as the Aberdeen-headquartered business targets a new phase of growth.
Mr Cooper said: “I am excited to be joining Xodus as the energy industry begins to turn the corner and rebuild after several difficult years. I have always admired the breadth and depth of expertise in Xodus, as well as their agility and entrepreneurial spirit.
“I look forward to working closely with my new colleagues around the world as Xodus continues to develop and grow.”
Xodus managing director Steve Swindell said: “Through senior roles in both engineering and construction, Phil has gained an international reputation for his work in the industry. He has a unique blend of in-depth technical knowledge which stretches across many engineering disciplines.
“We are in no doubt that his experience and expertise will help us build our reputation as a leading consultancy around the world as we target projects in new as well as existing markets.”
