A new year and with it, a new chapter for BRUSH Group.
It’s with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of our CEO Chris Abbott. Chris has been instrumental in guiding BRUSH through some of the biggest changes and challenges in the Group’s history.
Of his time at BRUSH, Chris says: “It’s been a privilege and pleasure to have been part of the BRUSH story. I’m very proud of what we’ve all achieved and built together, sometimes against very strong headwinds. I know that I leave the business stronger and in good hands, ready to face the future.”
Chris will be leaving his role this month but will continue to contribute to our future plans by becoming Chairman of the BRUSH Board, working closely with our parent company, OEP.
Our new CEO, Nicolas Pitrat, will be moving up from his current role as BRUSH Group Finance Director. Nicolas will ensure BRUSH stays focused on delivering uncompromising quality with every project, as we continue to develop innovative, integrated and sustainable engineered solutions that harness and safeguard the flow of electrical energy across the UK.
Of his appointment, Nicolas says: “I’m excited and honoured to be taking up the mantle from Chris. BRUSH has a great future ahead, with the people here to help us succeed. I’m looking forward to working with clients, colleagues and suppliers to help ensure we continue to deliver the innovations that will enhance our electrical energy management products and solutions.”
