Recently, the board of directors of access company BrandSafway announced via emailed press release that Karl Fessenden (pictured) has been named Chief Executive Officer and Christian Garcia will be the company’s new Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

“We are pleased to have these talented leaders join the BrandSafway team,” said John Krenicki, chairman of the board and acting CEO. “We are confident that Karl and Christian, along with our deeply committed management team and the best employees in the industry, are well positioned to drive BrandSafway’s continued leadership in the sector."

Previously, Fessenden served as MB Aerospace’s president and chief operating officer, CHC Helicopter’s CEO, and head of General Electric’s $8 billion Power Generation Services unit. Through his 25 years of leadership experience in complex service-based businesses, Fessenden plans to leverage his experience in BrandSafway’s end markets and a track record of driving commercial and operational excellence in both public and private companies.

“I am excited to join BrandSafway, a market leader with an outstanding team, a strong commitment to safety, and the broadest portfolio of services and products in the industry,” said Fessenden. “The company is well positioned for continued success and growth."

Garcia is a three-time public company CFO with experience across all aspects of the financial function. Prior to working at BrandSafway, Garcia served as oil field services supplier Weatherford’s CFO, and also served as automotive supplier Visteon’s CFO and as Halliburton’s acting CFO.

“BrandSafway has a strong financial position with significant liquidity, allowing it to pursue the significant organic and inorganic growth opportunities available in its markets,” said Garcia. “I’m looking forward to helping drive the next phase of the company’s growth.”
