A native of Scotland, he will be based in Aberdeen, where Aker Solutions has 2,600 employees working in the maintenance, modifications and operations, drilling technologies and subsea business areas. He will also oversee operations in Stockton-on-Tees and the recently opened office in London, which over time will become a hub for global engineering and subsea services.

Aker Solutions has since 2011 established regional structures in Brazil, North America, Norway and now the UK to bolster its presence and build stronger relations with key customers.

The company provides products and services for the offshore oil-services industry. It has about 28,000 employees in more than 30 countries. The deepwater and subsea segments are its main market segments.
