The new owner of Dundee construction firm McGill will lead the company as chief executive – but only on a temporary basis.
McGill was purchased from administration by Catalus Energy Investments Ltd last week.
Announcing the firm’s new board, company owner Graeme Carling said he would look for a permanent chief executive.
Mr Carling, who is known for his large property firm Carling & Co, said: “Since engaging with administrator KPMG at the beginning of February, we have been working behind the scenes to pull together a team capable of leading McGill forward.
“I will assume the role of chief executive officer and work with the board to set out the strategy and lead the organisation forward.
“However it is my intention to fulfil this role temporarily while we look for a permanent option.”
Mr Carling will be supported by Syd Fudge, who has joined the board as non-executive group chairman.
Mr Fudge has more than 40 years of business experience, including knowledge in establishing new organisations, and received the OBE for services to the oil and gas sector in Scotland.
Chief financial officer Kevan Sturrock has held leading financial and accounting roles in the oil and gas service sector, including Johnston Carmichael and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Chris Ferriday has been appointed operations director having held a similar position for McGill and Co prior to administration. He will be responsible for the day-to-day management of contracts and works.
Fraser Kirk joins the board as communications director, having previously worked for Perth-based marketing firm Volpa.
Harry MacLean, currently managing director of Dutch steel wire rope firm Hendrik Veder Group, completes the board and will help the business streamline its procurement processes and other operational activities.
Mr Carling said: “This is an extremely exciting time for McGill as we look to take advantage of the opportunities the market is offering us with an extremely talented and experienced management board.
“We are delighted to welcome all our new board members who I know will bring their own insights and expertise from their collective decades of experience.
“I have no doubt they will be instrumental in helping us deliver on our ambitious plans.”
Mr Carling said he would be holding a series of meetings over the next two weeks with the firm’s former customers.
McGill collapsed into administration on February 1 with the loss of 374 jobs.
