Executive Vice Presidents have been appointed to lead each group and will report to me. In addition, we have consolidated our legal entities to provide simplicity and efficiencies company-wide. We believe that this ‘One ENGlobal’ philosophy will enhance the ability of our business development team to actively cross-sell all of our capabilities to multiple business sectors within the energy industry. We expect our new structure will help to diversify our client mix and heighten focus on our corporate strategy."About ENGlobal ENGlobal provides project delivery solutions through its engineering and construction, field solutions, and automation groups, primarily to the energy sector throughout the United States and internationally.
