Ian Simm, Impax chief executive, said:
 
"We are pleased to announce the incorporation of a subsidiary in the United States and the appointment of Ken Locklin. Impax is growing rapidly as institutional investors seek to commit significant amounts of capital to the environmental sector and the U.S. is a key market for our expansion. Ken’s considerable expertise and leadership in the environmental and wider financial sectors will be invaluable as we extend our commercial activity and raise our profile in the U.S..”
