SCEE founder Frank Tomasi.

SCEE directors walk out on restructure

Half of the board of Southern Cross Electrical Engineering, including its chairman John Cooper, has quit citing a difference in opinion over strategic direction as the company announced a number of redundancies and cost-saving initiatives in response to the tough climate for local contractors.

Congratulations Mr Tomasi. Since the float something has happened to what was a very lean and competent professional,organisation. This restructure, with luck, will see SCEE return to some of its historical success in the offshore areas. It was amazing to see a board move from such a market place where, had SCEE maintained their presence,mother would have been perfectly placed to continue to success, based on the good will built up over the years. Once again, we have see those who don't understand the electrical construction sector fail in that industry. The fish rots from the head, and perhaps this move will stop the rot.
