Billingham-based Nortech Group has appointed highly-experienced energy, chemical and power industry specialist Colin McMillan as its new group development director.
With more than 40 years’ experience in the oil, gas, petrochemical and power sectors, McMillan was most recently business development director at ENGIE-owned Fabricom, spending 12 years with the company.
He also gained significant experience with Whessoe Projects followed by six years as director and general manager at Mowlem Engineering Projects.
As group business development director, McMillan will be responsible for helping to broaden its market base and increase its presence in its key industry sectors.
In five years, Nortech Group has become one of the UK’s fastest growing and most-respected engineering service providers.
It delivers engineering design, management consultancy and staffing search and selection services to clients in the oil and gas, energy, chemical and petrochemical industries.
Headquartered at Wynyard with an office in Aberdeen, the group also has a presence in the Middle East after it established a joint venture company, Al Dhabi Nortech Engineering Consultancy LLC in Abu Dhabi at the end of 2016.
McMillan said: “Nortech Group has made considerable strides in its short history and I am very much looking forward to being part of its next stage of growth.
“I have known Bryan for a number of years and when the opportunity came for us to work together I was keen to take it and be part of an expanding and dynamic business.”
Managing director Bryan Bunn – pictured above (left) with McMillan – added: “Colin has established a reputation across industry that is second to none and will be a tremendous asset to Nortech as we continue to develop and grow the business. His experience, market knowledge and network of contacts will undoubtedly add value to our expanding presence in the UK and international industry.”
