ENGIE has stepped up growth plans in Scotland with the appointment of Brian Pettigrew as regional managing director for its regeneration business.
Brian was previously group operations director for Robertson Partnership Homes. His new role will see him tasked with helping to drive forward the former Keepmoat Regeneration business, which was acquired last year by ENGIE.
The former Keepmoat Regeneration workforce is relocating from Cambuslang to a new office in North Lanarkshire, which will be shared with ENGIE colleagues delivering facilities management services across Scotland.
Brian said, “It’s a time of huge opportunity for the business north of the border. The Scottish Government is as enthusiastic as its ever been to invest in and expand affordable housing across the country. Not only have we seen the commitment to deliver 50,000 units in the lifetime of this parliament, but there is also more widespread recognition on improving existing stock to tackle fuel poverty and enhancing the quality of lives through better services. At ENGIE we are in a unique position to offer all these things and become the market leaders in placemaking.”
Dave Sheridan, ENGIE’s divisional CEO for places & communities added, “Expanding the ENGIE offer in Scotland is one of our prime business objectives. The regeneration team has done remarkable work in the last decade and made a real difference to improve the lives of Scottish people. As Brian leads them into the new era with several new products to offer our clients, we anticipate considerable growth, in both partnerships and staff numbers. We’re delighted to have him on board.”
