TRAINING and technology provider, 3t Energy Group, has appointed a new finance director to help drive ambitious global growth plans.
Chris Durling joins from EY, and will be responsible for the financial management of the group’s combined training businesses to help drive further expansion.
One of his first tasks will be to integrate Petrofac’s recently acquired in-person training business into the group.
Prior to EY, Chris worked for KPMG in Scotland, primarily focussed on the UK retail division and was responsible for delivering several merger and acquisition deals for the food and drink sector.
Chris said: “As well as an extremely talented and committed team, the group boasts an unrivalled global customer-base and some of the most innovative training and technology solutions on the market today.
“Our work with a number of the energy sector’s biggest and most influential names is helping increase safety, reduce carbon footprint and create highly competent and efficient workforces across the world. I’m delighted to now be part of this inspirational growth journey and am looking forward to supporting the team and its clients through the energy transition and beyond.”
Paul Knowles, 3t Energy Group’s training division vice president, said: “We are delighted to welcome Chris to the senior management team at 3t Energy Group. He is extremely well known and well respected within the energy sector and will be an enormous asset to the group moving forward.”
