Amec Foster Wheeler says that Samir Brikho is stepping down as Chief Executive.
Ian McHoul, Chief Financial Officer, has been appointed into the role of interim CEO with immediate effect and will chair the Group Leadership Team whilst the search for the new CEO is conducted. The Company's search will consider both internal and external candidates. Ian is not putting himself forward for the role.
John Connolly, Chairman, said: 'Samir has been the Chief Executive for over nine years and has made a significant contribution to our development over this period, including the re-shaping and re-focusing of the business at the start of his tenure to build up the global company Amec Foster Wheeler is today. On behalf of the Board and everyone at Amec Foster Wheeler I thank Samir for his commitment and contribution. We wish him the best for the future.'
