ICR Integrity has announced the promotion of Alan McQuade to Group Managing Director.
Alan joined the company in 2018 as Chief Financial Officer and has played a pivotal role in developing the company’s strategy for the global energy market laterally as Chief Financial & Strategy Officer.

He will provide on-going consultancy support to the end of 2021 to assist with growth initiatives including building international presence, further diversifying into new markets and sectors, and supporting the company’s global hubs and partners.
Willie commented: “Although stepping away from my role at ICR, I remain completely invested in the business and team who I have worked with over many years. It has been a privilege to sit alongside the ICR Management and staff and I am confident Alan will use the solid foundation to further expand and grow the business both in the UK and internationally."
Alan said: “I’m delighted to be moving into the role of Group Managing Director, especially poignant as we celebrate 10 years in business as ICR.
