BATON ROUGE, Louisiana– Brown & Root is moving its corporate headquarters to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, from Houston.
The headquarters will be at Citiplace on Corporate Boulevard. The first group of executives is to be in Baton Rouge by the end of this year, and the remainder by the end of 2016.
The move follows the acquisition of Wink Engineering LLC from Willbros Group Inc. by Bernhard Capital Partners, a Baton Rouge private equity firm. Bernhard Capital Partners, in partnership with Houston-based KBR Inc., is re-establishing Brown & Root as a global services provider by combining KBR’s Industrial Services Americas Group with Wink Engineering.
