LMS appoints Americas business development manager18 October 2022
Load Monitoring Systems (LMS) has announced the appointment of Wayne Lacey to the newly created role of business development manager for the Americas.
LMS says the move “represents a significant advancement in the company’s foothold in the US and Americas where established and prospective relationships are set to be ramped up”, and that Lacey’s “international experience in hands-on and senior supervisory and management roles will be crucial in helping LMS to fulfil its ambitious plans for this emerging market”.
The company says it will tap into Lacey’s 30-plus years of knowledge to increase support to existing customers and secure new customers in target sectors including onshore and offshore oil and gas, renewables (wind and tidal), aquaculture, entertainment and subsea.
Last month, LMS completed the dual acquisition of AeroGo UK and Load Moving Systems, which both operate within the air moving systems market.
The company also recently celebrated the official opening of its 7,700ft2 headquarters on Aberdeen’s Claymore Drive.
Commenting on his appointment, Lacey – who will be based in the Energy Corridor in Houston, Texas – said: “I am delighted to join LMS at an exciting time in the company’s growth journey and I look forward to playing a part in developing relationships in and around the Americas market.”
LMS Managing Director Kirk Anderson added: “The Americas always presented significant opportunities for LMS and this strategy has been two years in the making as Covid delayed original implementation plans for 2020.
“We are now pleased to get things back on track and delighted that Wayne has joined the team. His industry experience and knowledge will allow him to make an immediate impact and we look forward to seeing things go from strength to strength.”
