International subsea rental equipment and solutions specialist Ashtead Technology (Westhill, United Kingdom) has appointed Scott Stephen as the company’s new regional general manager for its Middle East business.
Based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Stephen is aiming to help solidify the company’s existing market position in the region and spearhead further business expansion as part of an international growth strategy.
“The Middle East represents a significant growth opportunity for our business, and we are delighted to have Scott leading our operations in the region and driving the next phase of growth,” says Allan Pirie, CEO of Ashtead Technology. “This recent strategic appointment reflects our ambitious growth plans for the region, and internationally, as we look to expand our service offering across all key offshore energy markets to solve our customers’ underwater survey, mechanical solutions, and asset integrity challenges.”
Ashtead Technology has an established presence in the Middle East and has worked to strengthen its position with the acquisition of Abu Dhabi based TES Survey Equipment Services in 2016. Three years later, in 2019, the company invested in a new facility in Musaffah, Abu Dhabi, to expand its footprint and increase the range of equipment and services offered to customers in the region.
Stephen, who has been with the company for five years while holding various senior business development roles, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role. “Ashtead Technology has established itself as a reputable partner in the Middle East, and I look forward to building on this and growing our capabilities and track record in the region to support our customers’ offshore energy projects,” Stephen says.
