SVI appoint new non-executive director to their board

Steve Vick International (SVI) has announced that Barry McNicholas has been appointed as a non-executive director to their board of directors.

Steve and Barry first met in the late eighties when Barry joined his family company McNicholas Construction who were for many years one of SVI’s principal customers in the gas industry. With Barry’s experience as CEO of a large family company, he and Steve have always kept in touch to share their experiences of the special nature of family businesses.

Barry was most recently Group Managing Director of Kier plc where he had full executive responsibility for its Utilities & Rail business.

Crock Harrison, Managing and Technical Director commented: “Following on from Tony Day’s departure at the end of 2021 we welcome Barry and his wealth of experience across the different utilities industries. His knowledge will certainly help us as we continue to grow and diversify into other sectors. We’re delighted he’s been appointed to serve on the board and look forward to working with him.”

On his appointment, Barry commented: “Having worked with Steve for so long and been involved in numerous projects with both him and the company I am delighted to join Steve Vick International. SVI is a successful market-leader that’s been in the business for 40 years and continues to develop innovative engineering solutions that offer significant benefits to the organisations with whom they work.”
