Powerhouse Energy Group PLC said Friday that Paul Emmitt has been appointed chief technical officer with immediate effect.
The U.K. technology company said this was a non-board position and that it had been created in anticipation of Chief Executive David Ryan’s forthcoming retirement on June 30.
The company said Mr. Emmitt is the managing director and founder of Engsolve Ltd. an engineering consultancy Powerhouse has worked very closely with for the past four years.
“Mr. Emmitt will take over Mr. Ryan’s responsibilities for Powerhouse’s technology development program, including all its design, research and project technical assurance activities,” the company said.
Shares at 0734 GMT were up 0.02 pence, or 0.4%, at 4.70 pence.
