New chief executive for John Laing
By Helen Wright16 January 2014
Olivier Brousse has been appointed chief executive of UK-based
infrastructure investor John Laing. He succeeds Adrian Ewer, who is to retire.
Brousse joined the company from Saur Group, an environmental services management firm, where he was executive chairman. John Laing said Ewer would stay on for a month to ensure a smooth transition.
John Laing chairman Phil Nolan, “We are delighted that we have attracted someone of Olivier’s calibre to succeed Adrian. His outstanding track record at Saur Group and prior to that at Veolia, combined with the strong existing John Laing management team that he will inherit, reassures us that we will retain the solid platform that has delivered John Laing’s great success. The Board believes Olivier brings with him the necessary drive and experience to ensure we are well placed for the future.”
