Mr Thillerup said: “Xodus has gained a strong reputation for its work in offshore renewables around the world and I am excited to lead the team as we look to establish ourselves in the North American market.”
He will be supported by, Jamie MacDonald, who is relocating from Xodus’ headquarters in Aberdeen, to take up the position of director of operations.
He will be responsible for helping to grow the business and brand awareness across North America.
