Babtie chief steps down after 30 years

BABTIE CHAIRMAN Henry Perfect stood down this week after more than 30 years with the firm.

His departure follows an 18 month restructuring exercise.

Announcing profits for 2001 - up 68% at £5.3M on a turnover of £148M - Babtie unveiled Chris Masters as part-time non executive chairman. Masters recently retired as chairman of temporary power supplier Aggreko.

'Having completed our restructuring, we felt that we no longer had need of a full-time chairman, ' said Babtie chief executive Bill Mitchell.

Under the review, Babtie has restructured into five operating divisions: professional services, infrastructure consultancy, facilities, industry and environment.

Each has its own operating board and managing director.
