The new Group structure will give clearer direction and focus to our work in both the Energy and Environmental sectors. We have ambitious growth plans and Donald will form an important part of the board and its decision making.” 

Forsyth added: “McGowan Group has achieved impressive growth in recent years, and I am confident that it has even more significant growth potential ahead. Ross’ focus on the personal development and well-being of his team attracted me to the role and I look forward to being part of the next stage of the company’s growth journey.”
