A fledgling, Aberdeen-based energy sector procurement firm has hired a business development director with more than 30 years’ experience.
GOT Procurement Services’s boss said the appointment of Bill Hogarty, who most recently held the chief executive role at fire and safety group Oteac/HVAC&R, would support the firm’s growth.
GOT − which was set up last summer, just weeks after its predecessor, GOT Services, went out of business − recently got involved in six new projects, contributing to a 50% increase in turnover during the last half year.
GOT has expanded into the renewable energy sector, having previously specialised in oil and gas.
GOT managing director Warren Anderson said of Mr Hogarty’s appointment: “We are delighted to welcome Bill to the GOT team. His vast amount of relevant experience will allow us to continue to provide an optimum service to our existing clients.
“As we enter new markets we have the confidence and the clarity to showcase how our products and approach can add real value to the supply chain of our target industries.”
Mr Hogarty said: “This is an exciting time to be joining GOT, building upon the company’s heritage and focusing on our commitment to providing a reliable service our clients can depend on.”
