Equans, the new name for Engie’s services-led operations, has named former Vinci UK MD Jean-Philippe Loiseau as the new chief of its UK & Ireland business.
Loiseau will join in September and succeeds current CEO Nicola Lovett, who leaves the £2bn turnover UK business to pursue new challenges outside of the group.
He has previously led a number of Vinci’s Group’s European subsidiaries, including Vinci’s FM and construction businesses in the UK.
He also managed Antea, an independent environmental services company for ten years.
Jérôme Stubler, Equans CEO, said: “I would like to thank Nicola for the part she has played in the establishment and launch of our new business and for the great dedication and leadership she has shown throughout her successful career with Engie.
“The UK is an important market for Equans and I am pleased to welcome Jean-Philippe, who is a strong, experienced leader with the qualities to implement the next phase of growth for our UK & Ireland business, while continuing to deliver high performance outcomes for our customers”.
Last month, Engie announced the creation of Equans, bringing together its global service activities under a new brand, creating a market leader in the sector with 74,000 employees and revenues of 12 bn euros.
