Black & Veatch makes leadership changes

Black & Veatch said it appointed two senior leaders to guide its Energy-focused operations. 

The decision comes after the announcement that Dean Oskvig, current President and CEO of the company’s Energy business, will retire after 40 years of service, Black & Veatch said in a statement.

Oskvig will continue in his leadership role through the remainder of 2015 while guiding a transition period for Hoe Wai Cheong, President, Oil & Gas; and Ed Walsh, President, Power. Both will report to Steve Edwards, Black & Veatch Chairman & CEO.

Based in Singapore, Cheong is currently Executive Vice President and Executive Director, EPC Projects for Black & Veatch. He leads Black & Veatch’s EPC business for Energy throughout the world. Cheong is responsible for global strategy, business development, and project acquisition and execution. He joined Black & Veatch in 2007 and became a member of the company’s Executive Committee in 2011.

“It’s an exciting time to be in the Oil & Gas business and having also spent time building the Power business in Asia, I feel both businesses are on a strong foundation and well-positioned to continue to grow. In particular, some of the recent successes the company had in the LNG sector create an excellent platform to grow our portfolio in the Oil & Gas market,” said Cheong.
