APR Energy Names New Chief Financial Officer
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — APR Energy, the global leader in fast-track flexible power generation, announced today the appointment of its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Ron Crowell, a finance executive with more than 25 years of global experience.
As APR Energy CFO, Crowell will oversee all financial aspects of the company, including financial planning and analysis, reporting, accounting, treasury, tax planning and compliance. He will also build and foster APR Energy’s relationships with lenders, auditors and external financial advisors.
“As APR Energy continues its aggressive plans for growth around the world, a professional of Ron’s caliber will support our organization by maintaining and enhancing the financial health and security of the company,” said Charles Ferry, APR Energy’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Ron’s background of managing capital and growth for Fortune 500 companies will help stimulate and drive business improvement initiatives while managing compliance and related matters. He is a very valuable addition to our team.”
Launching his career as an auditor and consultant at KPMG, Crowell consistently expanded his knowledge in driving deal integration and has grown to implement strategies that increase financial leverage, closing a significant amount of acquisitions and divestitures during his career.
In his previous role at World Fuel Services, Inc., Crowell served as senior vice president of finance, where he oversaw a global portfolio of markets that had annual revenues of approximately $9 billion, with more than five-billion gallons of fuel sold annually.
