Andy Pike, Cory Riverside Energy's new strategic infrastructure development director

Cory Riverside Energy has made changes to its leadership team. According to the group, the appointments come as it looks to build on the rationalisation completed in 2016 and the completion earlier this year of its £520m debt-refinancing package.

Julian Walker (pictured below) has been appointed chief operating officer. His experience lies bulk materials handling, ports development and logistic operations. Walker joins Cory from Impala Terminals where he served as chief operating officer and was responsible for 1,700 staff globally.

Prior to his role at Impala Terminals, he was a partner at Marine Infrastructure Partners, a specialist infrastructure investment and advisory firm.

He is expected to join Cory Riverside Energy in June.

Andy Pike is currently the director of Cory Riverside Energy’s London business and will become strategic infrastructure development director, a newly-created position.

In his new role, Pike is anticipated to lead and accelerate the development of new strategic infrastructure initiatives at Cory Riverside Energy. This will include leading the Cringle Dock Waste Transfer Station, the redevelopment of Charlton barge yard and lighterage, and the development of a new data centre located close to the Group’s Belvedere facility.

Pike has been at Cory Riverside Energy since 2004 and has held several roles, reporting directly into the chief executive officer and chief finance director.

According to Cory Riverside Energy, Ben Butler has played an integral role as Cory’s head of group finance, a position he has held for the past two and half years. During this time, he is said to have been instrumental to the completion of the corporate reorganisation and the refinancing of the Riverside EfW plant.

Butler is expected to now lead Cory Riverside Energy’s enlarged finance team in his new role as finance director and will continue to report into Richard Milnes-James, the chief finance director, as well as reporting to Julian Walker as a member of his team.
