OJAI, CA--(Marketwired - February 25, 2014) - Effective April 1, BST CEO Colin Duncan will assume leadership of DEKRA Insight, the safety consulting arm of DEKRA S.E. DEKRA Insight offers safety advice and expertise in process and organizational safety through its two operations, Chilworth and BST. Together the service unit has over 400 staff and 100 associates in 14 countries.
Organizations committed to safety have a powerful new ally in creating safer workplaces globally with the unification of DEKRA Insight companies, Chilworth and BST, under new CEO and current BST chief executive Colin Duncan. The appointment takes effect April 1 and comes as Chilworth CEO Paul Cartwright prepares to retire nearly 30 years after founding the process safety firm in 1986. Cartwright and Duncan have jointly managed the service unit since their firms were acquired by DEKRA in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
The move will further align the two operations within the service unit and allow BST and Chilworth to better provide their clients with support for all of their safety needs globally. Combined as DEKRA Insight, the two firms have over 400 employees and 100 associates in 14 countries and offer services ranging from process analysis and lab testing to comprehensive safety strategy development. The firms' different areas of expertise naturally complement each other. "As a process safety firm, Chilworth delivers expertise that helps our clients control risk in industrial processes," says outgoing Chilworth CEO Paul Cartwright. "BST's legacy of expertise in organizational safety, specifically building leadership, culture, behaviors, and engagement, helps us provide more well-rounded solutions to all of our clients."
Duncan says his goal is to guide the development of DEKRA Insight as a service unit while protecting what has made each individual business so successful. "We have two very strong businesses delivering great results for their clients globally and with deep veins of talent," says Duncan. "Combined operations create a scale and market presence that will support both businesses in meeting client needs globally, and ultimately help us deliver on our commitment to saving lives, and preventing injuries and accidents."
