i-Tech 7, Subsea 7’s Life of Field business unit, has appointed a new regional business development manager for its Asia Pacific & Middle East region.
Craig Roberts has more than 25 years’ experience in the offshore oil and gas industry, specialising in the delivery of remotely executed subsea solutions and tooling across the entire lifecycle of a subsea development.
Mr Roberts, who joins from Total Marine Technology (TMT) where he was operations manager, will be based in the company’s Perth office, in Australia.
He said: “I’m looking forward to joining the highly talented team of individuals in the Asia Pacific & Middle East region. I hope to use my experience to build relationships with existing and prospective clients, understand their challenges and support the delivery of safe, reliable and cost-effective solutions that optimise subsea operations.”
Mr Roberts will work with Simon Hird, i-Tech 7’s Asia Pacific regional director, who joined the company earlier this year.
Mr Hird said: “I am pleased to welcome someone of Craig’s calibre to the team. He is a well-known face to many of our existing clients and brings key relationships from across the industry which will assist us as we pursue our growth strategy in the region.
“Craig’s appointment, coupled with our extensive life of field capabilities and the recent charter of specialist subsea support vessel, the MMA Pinnacle, ensures we are well positioned as the go-to partner for all our clients’ subsea life of field challenges.”
