Sparrows Group makes two key senior appointments

The Sparrows Group, which provides offshore lifting and mechanical handling services, has made two key appointments as it looks to enhance its market share in the UK and to grow its operations throughout the rest of Europe during 2015.

The company has promoted Mark Beveridge to the role of European operations director. To support him in meeting growth objectives, the group has also recruited Martin Thomson as head of business acquisition and strategic development for Europe and Africa.

Beveridge has worked in the field of engineering for over 25 years, and has been with the Sparrows Group since 2008. He started within the company’s Engineering division and most recently held the position of business manager for drilling before taking on his current role.

With over 20 years of accumulated experience working in the oil and gas industry, Thomson joins the company from KCA Deutag, where he was Commercial senior vice president in charge of overseeing all commercial activities globally. He has considerable international experience, and has worked for Total Oil Marine, Subsea 7, and GE Oil & Gas.

Based in Aberdeen, Scotland, the Sparrows Group provides engineered products and services primarily for the offshore sector, and specializes in lifting and handling, cable and pipe lay, and fluid power solutions.
