UK international engineering and offshore services company EnerMech has made two senior appointments at its office in Mumbai. Rahul Dalela has been confirmed as general manager operations, while Chetan Mistry becomes head of finance.
Dalela joined the company last August after nine years as a vice president with HSBC in Kolkata. Having qualified as a chartered accountant, he began his career in 1996 as deputy finance manager at Tube Products in Baroda, leaving after a year or so for a similar role at chemical company Atul. The following year he was appointed finance controller at DaimlerChrysler Rail systems and in 2001 moved to SBI mutual Fund as head of operations, leaving after four years for a similar job at Capita India. After a short spell with SS&C he joined HBSC in 2013.
Chetan Mistry came to EnerMech after 13 years with Imprint Fiscal and Corporate Services as managing director and then a partner. He started with EnerMech in January but was involved in setting up EnerMech India and its shared services operation.
Dalela said: “When I joined, the initial focus was to bolster the team with piping specialists to work on semiconductor related projects for the manufacturing industry. Since then, we have also grown our process, pipeline and umbilical engineering team to provide a fast response team for infrastructure, energy, and heavy industries.”
Chief executive Christian Brown added: “We want to deliver a reliable, high quality service and with Rahul at the helm, supported by Chetan, we have the utmost confidence this continues to be assured.”
Based in Aberdeen, Scotland, EnerMech was established in 2008 by former PSL owners Doug Duguid, Michael Buchan, Derek Grant and Phil Bentley with a combined capital investment of more than £30 million from the four shareholders and private equity firm Lime Rock Partners. The company was acquired by Carlyle Group in late 2018 See: Carlyle acquires EnerMech
