Burrow Global, LLC Announces Organizational Changes Amid Steady GrowthInternational Firm to Continue to Grow and Expand Services and Management Team
Houston, TX (November 22, 2011) -- International engineering, procurement, and construction firm, Burrow Global, LLC (Burrow), today announced organizational enhancements in the wake of steady growth and success throughout 2011. The new management structure is reflective of the company's dramatic growth and increased size and further positions the company to meet client needs.
Since being founded in November 2009, Burrow has quickly grown to include eight wholly owned subsidiaries and several strategic joint ventures located in five domestic offices (Houston, Beaumont, Port Arthur, Crystal City and Clear Lake, Texas), one international office (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), and two fabrication facilities (Crystal City and Henderson, Texas). Burrow is now a global player in the provision of engineering and construction services for industrial, commercial, and institutional clients and specializes in process automation, industrial buildings, turnaround management, heat tracing, plant commissioning, start-ups and plant operations.
While acquisitions have played a major role in Burrow’s success, its organic growth has been even more impressive. In the spring of 2010, Burrow’s staffing levels peaked at 80 employees. Since then, the company has grown nominally to over 640 employees and expects to exceed 800 by January 2012 with continued growth for the foreseeable future.
As an initial step to further strengthen the company’s position in the Beaumont market, Dave Hill has joined the company as the President of Burrow Global Services, Beaumont Division. Mr. Hill has significant operations and business.development experience from his 30 years in the construction and engineering field. In sync with Burrow's growth culture, Hill's background includes being part owner of a Baton Rouge engineering firm that grew from 30 to 300 employees in two years; starting that firm's first controls/automation group from scratch to become 70% of revenues in less than one year; and starting "Plant Engineering Services, LLC" in Baton Rouge, LA and Pasadena, TX for Fluor Corporation that grew from one person to over 150 in less than 6 months.
Reporting directly to Mr. Hill, Leroy Faulk has been retained as the Vice President and General Manager of the Beaumont Division. Mr. Faulk brings over 36 years experience in various roles including President, V.P. of Operations, Manager of Projects, Engineering and Operations for local engineering and construction firms.
Additionally, Burrow has engaged Doug Eckols as the Vice President of Quality at the parent company level. Previously, Mr. Eckols has served variously as Executive V.P. - Human Resources, Engineering and Business Development and owner/founder in former companies in which Mike Burrow served as the Chief Executive.
Meredith Barnes, formerly Corporate Controller, has been named Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Administration. Ms. Barnes will now oversee the day-to-day accounting and treasury functions, human resources, IT and internal procurement services for all Burrow companies. She joined Burrow earlier this year and has more than 20 years of expertise in accounting for engineering and construction firms.
Ron Chapman has joined as the Civil/Structural Engineering Manager for the Beaumont Division. Previously, Mr. Chapman served as the structural engineering department head for another Beaumont firm and has over 34 years of experience in industry. He has also worked as part of the management team in former Burrow managed organizations.
Lastly, Donald Moyers, former Vice President of Demar Industrial Construction, a Burrow company, will assume the role of Vice President of the Plant Division for Burrow Global Construction. Mr. Moyers previously played an instrumental role in allowing Burrow to become a self-performing contractor in construction services. He brings more than 46 years of experience in refining & midstream sectors and will now consolidate the Demar Industrial Construction Division into Burrow Global Construction.
"Our plan to grow into an industry leader is rapidly coming to fruition," said Chairman and Chief Executive Office, Michael Burrow. "These new appointments will build upon the strong foundation of top industry talent and leadership that has propelled Burrow to its current status as one of the fastest growing EPC firms in the country."
