    Harkand strengthens management team

    Company News // May 15, 2013

    Harkand has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of three senior figures as the company embarks on the next stage in its growth strategy.

    Kevin Gorman has joined as vice president of HR. One of two new newly created group positions, his appointment will allow Harkand to strengthen its capacity as it looks to grow its current 750-strong global workforce. He is joined by new group general counsel Colin Forbes.

    John Ewen has been appointed general manager for Harkand ISS, which serves Europe, Harkand’s largest region. All three posts will be based in Aberdeen.

    “This is a very exciting time for our group,” said Nicolas Mouté, CEO of Harkand. “These latest appointments will form an important part of our new business strategy as we look to expand our global footprint. The expertise and knowledge that Colin, John and Kevin bring to the table will be invaluable in helping us achieve our plans for continued growth in the coming years.”

    David Kerr, managing director of Harkand ISS added: “We are experiencing strong demand for our services and in addition to the significant investment we are making in developing our portfolio of assets, bringing in someone with the talent and market reputation of John Ewen is a key step to grow our business and maintain our reputation for providing high quality services to our clients.”
