leadership change


Eugene Conroy, co-founder of Eta Projects, which was acquired by BRUSH Group in 2022, has announced his retirement.

As Managing Director, Eugene has played a key role in the impressive growth and success of the business and will stay with the company until August. Between now and then, he will be working closely with new Eta Projects MD Jeremy Watson (who is currently Power Infrastructure Director), to ensure a smooth transition.

Commenting on the news, Nicolas Pitrat, BRUSH Group CEO said: “I want to thank Eugene for all he’s done for Eta, including to help facilitate the business joining BRUSH Group. I look forward to continuing to work alongside him until August. I know that Jeremy has exciting plans for the business and is aligning his future vision with that of BRUSH Group. There is certainly plenty for everyone at ETA and BRUSH to look forward to.”

Of his successor, Eugene Conroy said: “Jeremy is one hundred percent the right person to take Eta Projects forward, and I know the business will be in the safest possible hands going into what promises to be a very exciting future.”

Jeremy has already started work, setting out his vision for the future success, growth and profitability of Eta Projects, as well as providing more value to all our customers. “I’m honoured to accept the baton from Eugene,” he says.  “Eugene has created a highly respected consultancy practice and I’m excited to lead the business into the future. I want to maintain the ethos, integrity and reputation that Eta Projects is known for, as well as broaden the scope of the work we do for the NHS while looking to grow our client base in new areas such as banking, data centres and with the MOD. “

Everyone at BRUSH wishes Eugene a happy retirement when he leaves in August, and we all look forward to working with Jeremy to help him realise his exciting vision for the business.
