Fuel specialist LCM Environmental has announced that Darcy Lane has joined its senior management team as chief operating officer.

Previously with Aircraft Services International Group (ASIG), Darcy has had total responsibility for fuel operations at Gatwick Airport and previously at Charlotte International Airport, the US’s fourth largest airport. Prior to that he had been in the Royal Navy managing its aircraft refuelling operations, training at RNAS Yeovilton and deployed on operations.

Managing director Mark Orr commented: "This is a significant appointment for LCM as we continue to invest in the foundations for growth over the next five years. Used to managing such a complex operation as aircraft refuelling at an international airport with many stakeholders and time pressures, Darcy will enjoy the broad range of fuel-related services that we undertake within LCM. We interviewed many candidates for this significant role, from construction to facility and project management. Out of a high-quality shortlist Darcy stood out with his customer-first attitude, understanding of fuel and experience of delivering innovation to improve value."

Darcy Lane commented: "Having worked at a senior level in ASIG, I was seeking something within the fuels environment but away from airports. LCM appealed, with its broad product range across the downstream fuels industry; similar core values to ASIG; strong emphasis on safety, excellent customer focus, and its innovation in delivering great service."

LCM Environmental works exclusively in the downstream fuels industry delivering products as diverse as fuel asset decommissioning at the end of its life, to cleaning tanks at terminals and on forecourts, to fuel quality management.
