A‑Gas has announced the appointment of Jack Govers as chief executive officer.
To pursue an ambitious growth agenda, the company said it is continuing to invest in its people, processes, innovation and technology to expand its service offering and drive towards its sustainability pledge of becoming a net zero company by the year 2035.
After an extensive global search, Jack Govers has been appointed as the new CEO to lead and deliver A-Gas’ plans for further growth, sustainability and operational business excellence.
Commenting on his appointment, Govers said: “I am joining A-Gas at an exciting time for the business as it continues on its environmental journey and plans for growth into new markets and regions. The company has built an outstanding reputation for almost 30 years and I look forward to being a part of what is to come.”
Govers brings a wealth of leadership experience and accomplishments from previous assignments at GE, SABIC, Aleris and Novelis where he has delivered exceptional growth, introduced circular economy initiatives and worked closely with private equity investors.
Govers will replace Andrew Ambrose who has been CEO of the business for more than seven years.
Ambrose will be moving into the role of executive chair, which will allow to work on the global leadership team on a full-time basis.
“I am very excited to welcome Jack into the A-Gas family,” Ambrose said.
“Jack joins us at an exciting time as we gear up for further growth, underpinned by our environmental agenda. His expertise in transformation, leadership and customer relationships will be a perfect fit for the A-Gas values and vision for the future.”
Govers officially began his new role yesterday, 4 October, 2021.
