Sparrows Group has promoted Adam Wood to its most senior role in the Americas as it looks to continue its diversification into the onshore industrial market in the region.
Wood has been employed by Sparrows for twelve years, holding several management positions including vice president of service, general manager – Louisiana operations and senior business manager. He succeeds Steve Bertone who retires after five years with the business.
Based at Sparrows premises in Slidell, Louisiana, Wood will be responsible for advancing the company’s diversification in the onshore industrial and renewables sectors while continuing to support its growth in the oil and gas market.
During his time at Sparrows, Wood has led the Slidell service centre’s development, managing client maintenance programmes and technical requirements. He is also responsible for ensuring Sparrows’ strict quality and safety standards are continually delivered across all projects in the region.
Wood said: “Having worked for Sparrows for a number of years, I have a sound knowledge of our operations across the Americas. The business has a clear growth strategy for the region as we continue to expand into new markets, and I look forward to progressing this.”
Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer of Sparrows said: “Adam has been integral to our company over the past twelve years, more recently leading our diversification efforts into the US industrial market. His knowledge of our operations, strong relationships with customers and experience in the markets we operate in has been invaluable as we navigate through the challenging environment faced today.
“Diversification has never been more important for our business and we have a robust strategy in place across the markets we operate in to deliver long-term growth in the region. We look forward to Adam successfully driving our Americas division and continuing to uphold the strong reputation we have successfully built.”
