Scottish & Newcastle’s (S&N) former general counsel and company secretary Peter Kennerley has joined power generation company Aggreko.
Kennerley’s role at S&N was made redundant when the brewer was taken over by Carlsberg and Heineken (The Lawyer, 6 May).
Aggreko provides temporary power to businesses and events such as the Beijing Olympics and the Glastonbury ;festival. Kennerley will become the director of legal affairs and company secretary.
He said: “The crucial thing will be that we have the right legal and compliance structure for a rapidly growing business.”
Graeme Colquhoun is now heading S&N’s UK legal function.
