Global energy industry executive search firm Ducatus Partners has made two senior appointments to help it branch into different sectors.
Ducatus said Jack Coker and Allister Graham had joined its Houston-based team as principal consultants.
Before joining Ducatus, Mr Coker worked for NES Global Talent, while Mr Graham was at Progressive GE.
Ducatus, which also has offices in Aberdeen, London, Paris and Singapore, said the new recruits would aid the firm’s diversification into the infrastructure, power and renewables sectors while cementing its position in the oil and gas industry.
The company was established earlier this year by Kevin Davidson, Sean Buchan and Jamie Ferguson, all former executives with Maxwell Drummond International, which went into liquidation in April.
Mr Ferguson, managing partner for Americas at Ducatus, said: “These appointments support our continued mission to be the leading provider of executive search and leadership consulting to the energy, process and infrastructure sectors.
“Jack and Allister fit very well with the collaborative culture of our business and their industry understanding and local market knowledge will ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality service to our clients.”
