Dearman is developing a suite of high efficiency, zero emission technologies for the transport, logistics and build environment sectors. The heart of its portfolio is the Dearman Engine, which uses the expansion of liquid nitrogen (N2) to create clean cold power.

The company has established a range of international partnerships and projects but believes that now is the time to increase its capacity and experience of its leadership team as it prepares for the next wave of growth.

Founder Toby Peters said the appointment comes at a “momentous time” for the company and enthused, “Scott has precisely the skills and business acumen to drive Dearman’s transition from an innovative technology developer to a game-changing international industrial company.”

“Dearman’s vision is to deliver clean, sustainable cold and power to help address global challenges of climate change, air quality and spiralling energy demand. We are well placed to take advantage, tapping into new sectors and fast-growing markets – and Scott brings the expertise and experience necessary to realise the opportunity.”

MacMeekin said he “couldn’t be more honoured” to have been chosen to spearhead the UK-based business going forward.
