ICR Integrity (ICR), leading global provider of integrated maintenance and integrity solutions to the oil and gas, power, chemical and nuclear industries, has appointed a new Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to support the business with its international growth strategy. 

 

Richard Wilson joins ICR in a newly-created role as COO, utilising 30 years of operational and commercial experience in the oil and gas industry - specifically from his time leading a major service contractor and oil company. 

 

Richard, a qualified Engineer, spent over 12 years with Sparrows Offshore, latterly as a Director of Operations during which time he established new bases in the Middle East, Singapore and India as well as leading significant growth in the UK market.

 

Commenting on his appointment, Richard said: “I'm delighted to join ICR and look forward to supporting the team with our industry-leading products and services. Our centre of excellence in Aberdeen has enabled us to grow our international presence; our asset integrity solutions, for example, continue to receive significant global interest.

 

Alongside Richard, new CFO Alan McQuade joins ICR. A Chartered Accountant with over 12 years' experience, he was previously CFO of two of Acteon Group's operating companies. Prior to Acteon, Alan was part of PwC's Transaction Services team, involved in financial due diligence and restructuring for both corporate and institutional clients.

 

Commenting on the double appointment, ICR CEO Bill Bayliss said: “We are pleased to welcome Richard and Alan to our 200-strong team, where they will support ICR's growth.  Our expert track record in offering integrated solutions has allowed us to expand in key regions including Australia, the US and the Middle East, whilst we continue to undertake exciting R&D work in integrity monitoring and repairs. The experience and knowledge of both complement our strategic aims and will be a fantastic addition to the company.”

 

ICR specialises in integrity, corrosion, maintenance and repair solutions with market-leading products including Quickflange™ weldless connection technology and Technowap™ engineered composite repair solutions.

 

With an expanding global footprint, ICR currently has operational bases in the UK (Aberdeen and Kendal), Norway, Australia, USA, and the UAE as well as key partners extending ICR's global reach.
