SYSTRA’s Executive Board Appoints New International Member: Andrew McNaughton
SYSTRA’s Supervisory Board renewed its confidence in the Executive Board and appointed Andrew McNaughton, who will take over as COO from 1 June 2016, as a member of the Executive Board.
On 1 June, Andrew McNaughton joins SYSTRA Group as Chief Operating Officer (COO). He will take over from Frédéric Delorme, who joined SNCF as Head of Security in January 2016.
Aged 52, he has spent much of his career within the Balfour Beatty group, one of the UK’s leading construction groups, which he joined in 1997. Between 2007 and 2009, he led Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering Ltd, where, notably, he was project manager for CTRL (HS1), before being appointed COO of the group in 2009. He served as its CEO from March 2013 to March 2014. He took over as Director of Engineering and Construction at Tidal Lagoon Power in April 2015.
Andrew’s international expertise and operational and project management capabilities, as well as his M&A experience, will be of considerable benefit to the Executive Board.
