By Maria Hadlow01 February 2010
Harsco Infrastructure has appointed Paul O'Kelly as regional managing director for Europe. Mr O'Kelly will be responsible for Harsco's access and formwork businesses in Europe that previously operated under the SGB and Huennebeck names.
Geoff Butler, chief executive officer of Harsco Infrastructure, said, "Although we recognise the difficulties that the recession has brought to the construction industry in 2008 and 2009 we feel that the wealth and experience Paul brings to this role will have a significant impact on our business performance in Europe. Paul will be a valued member of the Harsco team and I am sure he will make a long term contribution to Harsco Infrastructure across the world."
Mr O'Kelly joins Harsco Infrastructure from the Elliot Group, where he was the managing director of the UK business.
