EDS HV Group Appoints New Managing Director

High voltage engineering specialist EDS HV Group (EDS), part of the UK’s leading marine services company, James Fisher and Sons plc, has appointed Ryan Henderson as its new Managing Director.  

Ryan will become Managing Director on 1 January 2020 at which point Ken Ritson, current Managing Director and founder of the business will take up a new role as a Non Executive Director.

Ryan has worked in the Energy Sector for over 28 years, bringing a wealth of experience to the role.  He entered the renewables sector 7 years ago and has spent the past 5 years helping EDS to gain its reputation as a highly respected key player in the sector.  Prior to joining EDS, Ryan spent over 20 years at Northern Ireland Electricity as well as 2 years working for Vattenfall and EDF immediately prior to joining EDS.

Ken said:

“This is not a decision I have taken lightly and after several months of planning, I now feel that this is the right time for the change to take place.  I have no doubt whatsoever that Ryan is the best person to take up the position of Managing Director and I am confident that he will successfully lead EDS on the next stage of its journey.”

Ryan added:

“I am thrilled to be taking up the position of Managing Director of EDS.  With such an excellent reputation within the industry, they are a company that I am proud to work for.  It is a great honour to take up the position and be given the opportunity to lead the company, especially at a time when the renewables sector is in such a great place.”

Fergus Graham, Executive Director at James Fisher & Sons Plc, commented 

“I am delighted that Ryan is taking on this leadership role at such an exciting time for James Fisher as we grow our Renewables businesses.  The EDS acquisition has been a resounding success, and we are very pleased that Ken will be staying with the Group and helping to shape our future in the Renewables market.”

Ryan will work closely with Ken during the rest of 2019 to ensure a smooth transition.
