Gautier Jacob to become CEO of Imtech

Paul Kavanagh is stepping down as CEO of Imtech 27 years after jointly founding the business.

Gautier Jacob, who has been Strategy Director since 2017, will take over as CEO in November. He will head up a UK focussed group of businesses including Imtech Engineering Services, Imtech Inviron, Capula and Breathe.

Steve Wignall will become Managing Director of Imtech Engineering Services, reporting to Gautier.

The remaining business unit heads are unchanged with Noel Clancy, MD Imtech Inviron; Dave Pickles, MD Capula, and Gary Parke, MD Breathe.

Gautier said: “I am very proud to succeed Paul in the role of CEO of Imtech. I am fully confident that the quality and the commitment of our teams, our broad range of skills and our ability to deliver value-added services for our clients will continue to drive positive results across the business.

“Longer term, the aim to achieve net zero and fight against climate change will be a priority for all of us. Imtech, within EDF and with the support of our parent company Dalkia, is ideally positioned to mobilise our great talents in support of this ambition.”

Current CEO Paul Kavanagh said: “Like all businesses in the built environment sector, Imtech has been impacted by the unprecedented challenges that the coronavirus pandemic has brought this year.

“Our people and businesses have risen well to those challenges. I want to thank them for this and for what we have built together over the years at Imtech.

“I wish Gautier every success and know that the business will continue to thrive under his and the team’s leadership.”
