Global engineering group SNC-Lavalin has appointed Perth-based Brian Kelly as senior regional executive Australia & Asia.
Mr Kelly was previously the Australia country manager for construction contractor Kentz Corporation.
His new role follows last year’s takeover of Kentz by Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin.
SNC-Lavalin has also announced the integration of Kentz’s Australian operations with its existing resources group, which covers the mining, environment and water sectors.
Kentz employs 3,000 people across Australia, including 2,200 in WA, mostly on Gorgon, Ichthys and other LNG projects.
