Ashtead Technology has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of a business development director.
With a career spanning more than 20 years in the oil and gas industry, David Mair joins Ashtead from Hoover Ferguson Group where he held the position of global business development director. Prior to this, Mr Mair worked at Subsea 7 where he held a number of senior management roles, including group vice president of business development.
Based in Aberdeen, Mr Mair will be responsible for Ashtead’s global business development activities as the firm looks to further broaden its range of services and increase its geographical reach to provide its customers with the most efficient, cost-effective technological solutions.
Mr Mair’s appointment is the latest move in Ashtead’s growth strategy and follows the company’s recent expansion in the Middle East following the acquisition of Abu Dhabi based TES Survey Equipment Services LLC.
Allan Pirie, chief executive of Ashtead Technology said: “We have invested heavily in growing our international footprint over the past 12 months and expanding our service offering to meet the needs of our customers in the current market.
“David’s extensive subsea industry experience, coupled with an excellent business development track record makes him an extremely valuable addition to the team. He will be integral to driving forward our growth strategy, developing new business opportunities in both new and existing markets across the globe.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Mair said: “With more than 30 years’ experience in delivering equipment and service solutions to the subsea industry, Ashtead is well positioned to build on this long heritage with innovative thinking, cutting-edge technology and services.
“I am delighted to be joining such a high calibre team and look forward to contributing to the continued growth and success of the business.”
