Texo Group, the integrated engineering, procurement and construction (iEPC) company, has appointed a new Group Managing Director to spearhead the growth of the business across the oil and gas, renewables, infrastructure and decommissioning sectors.
Chris Smith will lead Texo Group into its next phase of development and growth. Mr Smith has over 30 years’ experience leading businesses in the construction, survey and inspection technology industries. His appointment comes as Texo Group has restructured its core business divisions to harness organic growth and has attracted or retained leading lights in their various sectors to take the group’s business divisions forward.
Mr Smith said: “I am delighted to have taken the lead of a company that is really going places. We have put together a strong team that together represent decades of experience which for a company as young as Texo Group is ideal.
“Since Texo was founded less than two years ago, it is now in a great position to continue the further development of our fast-growing service divisions. We are on track to achieve our ambitious growth targets and we have implemented a corporate structure that will further enable these plans.”
Texo Group, with sister company Texo DSI, offers multi-disciplined integrated asset management services to a range of industrial sectors. The company has integrated recent acquisitions into core divisions: Engineering, Accommodation, Fabrication, Integrity+ and Resourcing alongside Texo DSI. Mr Smith is also Managing Director of Texo DSI.
