Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 29, 2011
Houston based, ethosIQ, a global Business Process Acceleration company, is proud to announce one of its newest partner clients, Xodus Group, Inc.. Energy consultancy firm Xodus Group, Inc. is setting up a Houston operation with plans for major international growth. The independent Aberdeen-headquartered company is bringing its fully integrated field development services to the United States and is confident that its approach will be a success.
Matt Kirk has been promoted from Senior Consultant to Americas Regional Director and Lawrence Lambon, Integration Technology Manager is taking up the post of Houston Operations Director.
Matt Kirk has many years’ experience as a chartered engineer and worked with Acergy for 12 years latterly as Group Remote Operations Manager before joining Xodus Group in 2010. He said: "We have developed an impressive network of contacts in the US which gave us the confidence that there was a gap in the market for our integrated services offering. We are in a strong commercial position to establish a base here and have the credentials and capacity to deliver projects of all sizes as clients seek to overcome challenges through the life of their assets."
Lawrence Lambon has 13 years’ experience in process engineering and has been with Xodus Group since it launched in 2005.
When asked about the partnership with ethosIQ, Mr. Kirk, responded that the decision was not purely based upon price. It was imperative that we found an organization that would reflect our culture and work as an integrated partner. It was clear from our very first meeting that Xodus and ethosIQ shared common ideals and that there was great potential for the partnership.
ethosIQ is providing a full suite of Human Resource services to Xodus Group through their technology and longstanding strategic relationships with national firms like The Noble Group, Paycom, and Willis.
