Airswift has appointed Kyle McClure as its new CFO in a move which strengthens its senior leadership team. Based in the company’s Houston headquarters, McClure will work closely with CEO Janette Marx to push the company to further growth.
Airswift has enjoyed a recent uptick in trading and the buoyant energy, infrastructure and process industries, means McClure is joining the team at a key juncture to help steer the company into new regions and new sectors such as manufacturing.
McClure’s last role was senior vice president and CFO at oilfield services company, Franks International, overseeing finance operations in more than 50 countries. This extensive understanding of international operations will strengthen Airswift’s offering in complex regions and services, such as managed service provision.
McClure boasts 20 years’ experience in global operations, technology, investor relations, process improvement and capital markets; including eight years at Dell Technologies. His extensive background and deep understanding of multiple industries, most recently, energy services, will be critical as the company takes the next step in its finance and accounting transformation – enabling a more efficient way of working for staff, customers and contractors.
“In many ways this is a golden moment for Airswift: our core energy market is performing well and at the same time, our diversification strategy is maturing and delivering for us,” commented Janette Marx. “We have many more ambitions though, and by bringing in Kyle we hope to capitalise on that momentum while building a leadership team for our next stage of growth.
Marx added: “We also want to thank our previous CFO, Tim Briant, for his longstanding commitment to the company and the impact he has achieved here over the last few years. He has played a major role in navigating Airswift through the downturn to the strong position we are in today.”
