Kentz Names Executive VP of TSS Business Units
Kentz Corporation appointed Joseph Lichon as Executive Vice President for the Construction and Technical Support Services (TSS) Business Units.
This new role within Kentz builds on the business unit re-alignment announced earlier this year and co-ordinates the regional construction and TSS operations, reporting into Group President, Construction and TSS Business Units, Mike Murphy.
Joe joins the Kentz team from CB&I, one of the most complete energy infrastructure focused companies in the world, where he has progressed through a number of senior management roles, most recently to Vice President of Sales for the Americas. During his time with CB&I, Joe has also held senior roles with global account responsibility for both ExxonMobil and Chevron, and operational responsibility for the Asia Pacific and Australia region.
Joe originally joined CB&I in 1990 and spent a decade moving up through the engineering field, before moving towards business development. Following an eight year period with Fluor from 2000, holding both senior business development and operational roles, he returned to CB&I in 2008.
Mike Murphy, Group President, Construction and TSS Business Units, commented: “The re-alignment of certain services within our business units was undertaken to build on our provision of service to clients and to simplify our organisational structure so we can continue to deliver the same high standards as we pursue our growth strategy.
“Kentz now has a backlog of over US$4 billion, and the ability to be able to attract senior executives such as Joe is a key acknowledgement of our position in the industry. Joe brings considerable operational and sales experience and has managed some of the world’s largest energy engineering projects alongside commercial relationships with leading global energy companies. I would like to welcome Joe to the team, and we look forward to providing further updates as we continue to underpin our business units.”
