Kentech Appoints New Global Service Line Director for TMM

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Phil Johnson as Global Service Line Director for Turnaround, Maintenance & Modifications (TMM).  Phil and the TMM global team have worked tirelessly to complete Kentech’s TMM Value Proposition and are now excited to bring a better, digital approach to asset performance management, something we believe delivers an offering like no others in the marketplace. With a background in electrical engineering and a long career history, the last 7 years of which have involved heading up Kentech’s operations in Asia Pacific, Phil is excited to take on the challenge in this next step of his successful career.  He commented “Kentech is a company made up of long serving employees who genuinely believe in the ability of our core values to generate value for all our stakeholders, with our clients sitting front and centre. The TMM team is extremely strong, and growing every day.  With a highly skilled, digitally enabled workforce, a network of industry experts and an extensive body of knowledge, we can confidently say that we can achieve more for our clients at a lower cost”. Commenting on the developments within the TMM service line, John Gilley, Kentech COO, said “When the TMM Global Director position became available, we ran a process to find a replacement but there was always going to be only one winner.  Having worked with Phil for over 7 years and witnessed the effects he has on projects and regions under his charge, I had little doubt that he would inject the same energy into a Global Service Line.  Phil brings with him a hard but fair attitude and instils a culture of empowerment and respect in every team he has nurtured”. We would like to wish Phil and his team every success for the future in Kentech.
