Lorien Engineering Solutions appoints two directors to new look board

Lorien Engineering Solutions has boosted its UK board with the appointments of Phil Colquhoun and Chris Bullock.

The promotions follow the retirement of directors Steve Slater and Roy Klek and the promotion of David Mallinson to group managing director.

Lorien specialises in capital projects for food, brewing, drinks, life sciences, advanced manufacturing and logistics. The company is headquartered in Burton-upon-Trent, with international offices in Poland and South Africa.

As projects and buildings director, Colquhoun will be responsible for driving growth within this sector.

Colquhoun is a chartered engineer with more than two decades’ experience at Lorien, managing large, multi-disciplined projects in the bakery, dairy, pharmaceutical, snack foods, convenience foods and industrial products sectors. Prior to joining Lorien, he ran a FMCG food manufacturing plant and led a military engineering team for the British Army’s Royal Engineers.

Bullock has been appointed as engineering director, leading Lorien’s work for beverage manufacturers. He has more than 20 years’ experience in project delivery, specialising in packaging engineering and project management, and has led multi-disciplined projects for clients in the brewing, soft drinks and food sectors.

Colquhoun and Bullock join operations director Bill Treddenick on the UK board.

David Mallinson, group managing director, said: “Following on from the well-deserved retirements of Steve and Roy, we have taken the step to bring two talented and experienced members of our management team on to the board. Phil and Chris are integral members of the Lorien team and their promotions are highly deserved.

“The past 12 months have been challenging for our UK clients but our project management expertise has helped to keep critical supply chains moving. We look forward to building on our success in 2021.”
