SNC-Lavalin, whose Montreal headquarters is seen here, has hired Jeff Bell as its next CFO.

Paul Chiasson/The Canadian Press

SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. has named Jeff Bell as its next chief financial officer as part of the company’s continuing renewal process.

Mr. Bell, a former group chief financial officer for British energy services firm Centrica PLC, will join SNC-Lavalin as executive vice-president on Tuesday and take over as chief financial officer from current chief financial officer Sylvain Girard on April 14.

The hiring of Mr. Bell comes after the recent appointment of Charlene Ripley as executive vice-president and general counsel and Louis Véronneau as chief transformation officer.

In December, SNC-Lavalin was fined $280-million after its construction division pleaded guilty to fraud for actions taken in Libya between 2001 and 2011.

The company announced last week the nomination of three new members to its board of directors is part of its renewal process, while four current board members of SNC-Lavalin’s board will not be standing for re-election.

Newcomers Gary Baughman, Chris Clark and Mike Pederson will stand for election at the company’s annual meeting on May 7.
