June 1, 2016. We are pleased to announce that our Fire, Process and Electrical practice will be separating into two distinct practices, Electrical Engineering and Fire & Explosion Investigation, effective June 1, 2016. As part of this new development, Michael D. Pratt, P.E. has been promoted to Principal and Director, with strategic and operational oversight over the Fire and Explosion Investigation practice. Principal and Director Tom Bajzek, P.E., CFEI will continue to lead our Electrical Engineering practice.
“Tom’s broad operational expertise and strong reputation for technical excellence have been pivotal in setting the stage for this next chapter of our growth,” said President and CEO Michael E. Stevenson. “This action reflects the exceptional performance of the collective team, and the need for us to sharpen our strategic focus and better capitalize on the unique opportunities in each of the respective disciplines.”
Going forward, the teams will continue to work closely together to leverage the natural synergies between the two areas, but will have added flexibility to execute on distinct strategies targeted at key market segments. With this move, clients gain direct exposure to more focused expertise and enhanced business and technical execution capabilities. They can also feel confident that quality and responsiveness are ingrained into every aspect of ESi’s business, culture, leadership, and services.
As ESi builds on its existing momentum – enhancing its ability to scale operations and pursue new avenues for growth, the company remains committed to its core mission and values. According to Stevenson, “Mike Pratt is an industry veteran with proven experience leading cross‐functional and global teams. He has been instrumental in driving our success in fire and explosion investigation, and is emblematic of the deep bench strength we’ve developed in this discipline. I could not be more pleased about his appointment to this critical role at this important time.”
