Perth-based contractor Tempo Australia has appointed former Bis managing director Ian Lynass as its chief executive, replacing Max Bergomi after two years in charge.
Mr Lynass, who joined Tempo in January as the vice-president of strategy and corporate development, will begin in the role immediately.
He worked across a variety of industries for 25 years before joining Brambles Industrial Services in 2000, serving in a number of roles including general manager of oil, gas and mining services, and regional director.
A restructuring of Brambles in 2006 led to the estabishment of Bis as a separate business.
“He brings global experience to our management team and a track record of building high-performing companies,” he said.
Mr Lynass wil be paid a fixed salay of $250,000 per annum (excluding superannuation) and will be allocated 500,000 performance rights (which vest after three years) and a further $350,000 of performance rights at the end of both year 1 and year 2.
“Max has led Tempo during a challenging time in the Western Australian market,” Mr Bontempo said
“During this period he has made a substantial impact on our business, including a push for greater efficiency and client service, and diversification into new sectors.”
Director Guido Belgiorno-Nettis has been appointed as deputy chairman.
Shares in Tempo were flat at 18.5 cents each at 3pm AEDT.
