"We are pleased to welcome Rick to our team, and we are confident that his leadership will enable AETI to maximize opportunities for power services to our traditional and renewable industry markets."

Thompson will be responsible for managing the company's Houston and Beaumont, Texas electrical services groups, as well as AETI's North American Renewable Energy Services group. AETI's power services groups include field services and the following in-shop services:
  • High-voltage field services:
  • Pre-start up services

"AETI has a strong reputation in the industrial testing/services market," said Thompson.

I look forward to leading AETI in reaching its maximum market position."
