Corix Utility Services Announces Name Change to Tribus Services

Jan 08, 2018

Corix Utility Services announced today it will now operate under the new name Tribus Services.

The name Tribus adds “bus”, referring to “electrical connection” or “common connection”, to the Latin root “Tri”, expressing the idea of our three businesses — deployment, project management and consulting — coming together.

The name change follows a decision from the Corix Group of Companies to restructure its United States and Canadian Utility Services divisions so they can operate outside a utility operations and governance structure. Tribus Services will remain part of the Corix Group, whose primary owner is the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (bcIMC).

Kevin Meagher, who led Corix Utility Services as Senior Vice President, has been promoted to President and CEO for Tribus Services.

“The change will allow us to be more competitive and expand our business opportunities to serve an increasingly global base,” said Kevin Meagher, Tribus Services President and CEO. “Our vision and focus has been refined to reflect the needs of our customers, and our new name will help us communicate our new strategy.”
