Appointment of experienced business professionals offers best-in-class workforce solutions for renewable and energy sector organisations in the UK and Europe
TXM Group has launched a specialist energy division in the North West. Headed up by former NES Fircroft director Stephen Martin and project and business change expert Mark Graham, TXM’s energy division will provide clients in the renewable and energy markets with a range of resourcing and project management solutions.
TXM’s energy division officially opens its doors with a six-strong team in the UK operating out of TXM Group’s new office in Wilmslow, Cheshire.
The resourcing side of the business will be led by Stephen Martin, former international Sales Director at NES Fircroft who joins TXM following a diverse 20-year career which has taken him from recruiter to director across a range of regions and industries. He started his career supporting leading UK manufacturers in the automotive sector before moving into energy, working with global supermajor oil and gas companies and a wide range of international players in the power, renewable and chemical markets. Over the past 10 years, he drove the company’s expansion into markets across EMEA, including complex locations such as Iraq.
Stephen leads a team of seasoned energy sector recruitment professionals with a combined 60+ years’ experience. They will support businesses with their domestic and international talent requirements, with a focus on the renewable energy sector and including the power and nuclear, oil and gas, and chemicals markets. Having lived and worked in locations across Europe, Australia, US, Canada and Thailand, this specialist team has vast experience supporting multinational clients both locally and globally.
Mark Graham joins TXM Consult to run a new energy-focused project management team, bringing more than 35 years’ experience in senior corporate, functional and project level positions in major international oil companies and contractor organisations. Mark has been instrumental in multiple international projects ranging in value from $1bn to $10bn; his specialist areas include onshore and floating LNG, gas processing, refinery, power, upstream (on and offshore), and pipeline projects. He has experience of driving and implementing organisational change, has led and managed large teams and has in-depth knowledge of the challenges of delivering complex global high-value energy projects.
TXM Group Director Stephen Martin comments: “TXM Group’s dedicated energy team offers clients and candidates a compelling proposition – a trusted team with extensive experience and market intelligence combined with the passion and drive of an entrepreneurial business. Going ‘The Xtra Mile’, providing exceptional service, runs through TXM’s DNA and that’s what our energy sector clients can expect across our offering spanning consultancy, digital transformation, project services and recruitment.”
TXM Group Managing Director Andrew Midgley concludes: “Our aim is to become a hub of excellence and offer clients a range of best-in-class services.
