Lloyd’s Register (LR), the specialist energy consultancy, has appointed Yvo Jansen as Global Business Development Director as the company underlines its focus on new market capabilities after re-shaping its Energy business last year.
LR has secured a number of recent major contract wins, including project management consultancy for India’s largest exploration programme and a multi-million-pound win for well operations in Mexico. Multiple offshore and onshore asset owners have also awarded contracts to LR for risk management consultancy, asset integrity, maintenance optimisation and AllAssets, LR’s proprietary asset performance and risk management software solution.
Yvo’s appointment will help LR continue to drive international business growth and market sector development, including the deployment of new portfolio services and solutions including opex and renewable energy. He will focus on building long-term partnerships with clients and ensuring high-quality delivery across the company’s breadth of capabilities, which cover the full asset lifecycle from concept to decommissioning.
This offering includes clean energy solutions, such as renewables and transition services; project management for exploration and drilling campaigns; technology verification and the development of sophisticated asset performance and maintenance optimisation strategies and software.
A mechanical engineer by trade, Jansen previously held roles as Chief Executive at Bureau Veritas, Group Managing Director for Escher, Director at Prysmian Group and several senior management positions with Raytheon and Stork Comprimo (Worley).
With 26 years’ leadership and management experience, much of which has been spent in energy and petrochemicals, digital and software, engineering and construction, and industrial and oil and gas advisory, testing, inspection and certification, Jansen’s track record and skill set are strong assets to LR as it shapes up for continued growth in 2020 and beyond.
Commenting on his appointment, Jansen says, “Lloyd’s Register is renowned for its depth of technical knowledge and has established strong, sustainable relationships with key players across the industry. I’m very pleased to be part of a team I’ve admired for many years and look forward to playing an important role in the business as we drive growth in 2020 and beyond.”
David Clark, Global Energy Director at LR adds, “We are delighted to welcome Yvo to the team during a pivotal time for our business as we target the significant opportunities that were unlocked by the shift in our business early last year. The energy landscape continues to change and pick up pace every day, and our focus is on helping our clients navigate the increasing complexity of digitisation, decarbonisation, policy and regulation to help create safe, sustainable, effective and reliable energy solutions. Yvo’s experience is well-placed to support this.”
Jansen takes on a global remit with LR’s Energy business, based primarily in London with frequent time spent in LR’s international offices.
