10th July 2019

px has appointed Geoff Holmes as its chief executive officer to support its next phase of growth.

Geoff joins px from his role as chief operating officer of INEOS Upstream Services and has held senior positions at Chevron, KCA Deutag and Talisman.

px manages, operates and maintains some of the UK’s largest energy and chemicals infrastructure. In 2018 it reported that profits had doubled within three years – success the firm expects Holmes’ appointment will cement.

“px has achieved remarkable growth in recent years, supported by the acquisition of key assets like Saltend Chemicals Park.

px is known as a specialist, independent operator of complex and technically-challenging assets. Geoff’s appointment as CEO means we are well-positioned to achieve even greater success across a portfolio of sectors.”

px employs 450 specialists at 10 sites across the UK and is headquartered in Stockton-on-Tees. It provides integrated infrastructure solutions for clients in combined heat and power (CHP), onshore and offshore gas, industrial parks, waste processing, biofuels, bioenergy and fuel storage.
